I got fixated yesterday and organized all the things connected to our router In a basket. Then I needed something the router could fit in so it wouldn’t fall over.
I made this on the glowforge with a piece of scrap plywood. I cut out 3 identical rectangles and then 2 from cast acrylic (for the right height). Once they were cut out I went about glueing, sanding and filling in missing areas with other random wood pieces (remember it was scrap). I painted it (now i would have used modgepodge) and then covered it rose gold leaf and made a base for it.
LOL like I said, fixated. But it turned out pretty cool and fancy! I would have liked it a bit taller and wider but it was just scrap wood.
Practical, frugal cut for organizing tech. Win!
From the thread title I was expecting a table for a rotary cutting tool, but this is cool too!
So much of language is totally nonsensical. I was thinking the same. I have a router table with the router dead and the screws rusted to keep me from removing it.
LOL, exactly what I thought at first. I’m thinking. "geez a router table made out of proofgrade anything would be completely useless. My router table router is HEAVY. "
needed a chuckle on a Tuesday.
like when my IT friend needed to talk to CISCO, and the person helping him got SYSCO on the line.
Ah my electronic friend. PB BLASTER penetrating oil i the product you need. put a little on every few days. you will be good to go.
my brother a former Marine Boat mechanic, used it religiously to free up salt water corroded bolts.
i personally used it to free up the bolts(as his suggestion) on a 40 year old roto tiller attachment that goes to my Grandfather’s 1969 Allis chalmers garden tractor. rebuit and new bearings and it will till anything.
I second that recommendation. I spray that on every nut and bolt when doing car work, even the ones I’m not planning to remove. It’s even better than Liquid Wrench.
Now that we resolved the rust problem, I would like to hear more about that rose gold leaf. That looks like a nice treatment. Does that come as some kind of a foil? Is it difficult to work with? How does it adhere?
Picture worth a thousands words
@drvegetable first time working with it. Wish I would have watched the video first! Below is the link of what I ordered.
