“It can cut through wood very quickly, but could ruin a piece of wood in a hurry, if you’re not careful,” he says. Not to mention a finger or two. Once Tyler was satisfied with the overall shape of the piece, he wanted to incorporate a few natural details. He used a router to carve the main rivers and lakes, and inlaid them with clear epoxy and metal filings. For the base, he chose a style favored by George Nakashima, a Japanese-American woodworker, architect and furniture-maker originally from the Spokane area, whose signature woodworking design was large-scale tables made from wood slabs, using live edges and artistic bases. Tyler’s table is about coffee-table height and measures a little longer than 3 feet.

Kreg Tool Donates Routers for Tools for Opportunity

Craig Sommerfeld, founder of Kreg Tool also serves on the Board of Directors for Tools for Opportunity. He has traveled to Central America and has seen firsthand the difficulties local craftsmen face in producing woodworking products. The craftsmen often make do with tools they have fashioned from scrap material. “These craftsman are extremely creative and talented. I believe that if we can provide them with quality woodworking tools and teach them how to use them, they can more easily support their families and have a positive influence in their communities,” Sommerfeld said. The router tables and routers have been shipped to El Salvador and are awaiting the arrival of a group from Tools for Opportunity.

It assists in providing complete control when making bevel or compound cuts.

Greene said the guitar he played is as good as it gets, and believes Kluesner did a wonderful job. The last Fender I played that Mike brought over, Greene said, is as good as anything I have ever played before. Probably as good as anything you could purchase from the Fender American Custom line. The fret work is outstanding and the same can be said about the body and neck. Even if a guitar has great electronics, it isnt a great guitar without a well-made body. If the body isnt good, you simply will not get the sound you are looking for.
