Latest Rockler Woodworking Jig Uses Router Table To Create Decorative Wooden Box Corners

“Different spline shapes can be created by using different router bits, resulting in strikingly beautiful joints.” The Router Table Spline Jig consists of a high-pressure laminate base which attaches to the router table with a pair of miter bars and 5-star knobs, and a durable plastic sled which cradles the miter joint and slides in the channels of the base to guide centered spline cuts through the joint. The Router Table Spline Jig is capable of accommodating frames with a standard 11” x 14” opening, or boxes measuring up to 12” x 12” x 12”. Two adjustable fences sandwich the workpiece for extra stability during cutting. A centering tool is included, which aligns the jig with the center of the router bit and attaches to the jig for storage when not in use. The Router Table Spline Jig (59288) retails for $79.99 and can be purchased at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide,, or from the Rockler catalog.

HouseWorks: Readers get chance to sound off

Bunny banes redux I got some fresh ideas in the spring from gardeners who apparently face the same varmint problems I do. Among their suggested bunny banes were radishes and nasturtiums, both of which I tried this past season. Whether the nasturtiums kept the bunnies away from the wildflowers I sowed among them or there simply were plenty of other greens to nibble by the time the daisies came up I dont know. But I do know I lost not a single nasturtium. Im less sure about the radishes. I planted them among the snow peas in early spring, and both crops came up fine, undisturbed by furry predators. But the snow pea crop was a bust, and Im fairly certain that was because they had to grow in the shade of the more lush radishes.

This router can power your devices wirelessly from 20 feet away

Energous WattUp wireless charging an iPhone 6

Instead of producing and managing routers, chips and software itself, it’s looking to license it out to other companies to integrate into their devices. So far it’s partnered with Foxconn (which makes more of the world’s electronics than any other single company), South Korea’s SK Telesys (part of that country’s largest conglomerate after Samsung) and a handful of smaller companies, including Haier and the makers of the popular Hexbug miniature robot toys. Energous believes this licensing strategy will help it bring its technology to market as early as 2016. In around six months, it’ll produce a reference design for both the transmitter and receiver that manufacturers can modify to fit their own needs. It does expect some second-tier manufacturers to use its references wholesale, but big players like Samsung, should they decide to go with WattUp, would be more likely to modify and integrate the tech into their own designs. Imagine toys that never run out of power, or wearables you never need take off The company is making moves to attract partners, like joining the Power Matters Alliance as chair of its new ” uncoupled power ” working group, and adding respected engineer Martin Cooper — aka the father of the cellphone — to its board of advisors.
