To participate in the NORDYS Video Contest, each contestant submitted a video based on the premise of inspiring the future generation of woodworkers. Entrants were encouraged to be creative in presenting their content in a video with a maximum duration of two minutes. Videos were judged for the Academy Choice division with emphasis on Creativity, Content, and Overall Presentation. “This year the NORDYS entries have shown us how creative people can be in getting the next generation involved in woodworking,” says Nathan Ensminger, Administrator of the NORDYS Video Contest. “It is heartwarming to see passionate woodworkers teaching their skills to younger people who are eager to learn the craft.” Look for the NORDYS Video Contest to return again in early 2015 with a fresh, fun woodworking theme.

8 Great Reasons to Own a Plunge Router

Then I used a hole saw to bore a 1-1/2-in.-dia. hole that is offset from the center of the groove. This hole accommodates the router bit, and it should be to the left of the groove as you face the jig. This is to ensurethat the router bit, which turns clockwise, will be turning into the work as you feed the stock into it. Next, I bored a similar hole in the top of my job-site workbench to allow the wood chips an escape route. I positioned my router over the hole in the jig and anchored the router to the table with a pair of clamps. The clamps were arranged on opposite sides of the router’s base, in line with the groove in the 2x stock.

BENCHTOP ROUTER TABLE

Leaving the rotary tool and cutting bit to do most of the work, we didnt see any signs of flaws in the cuts due to tool movement; so long as you dont apply too much pressure, the Router / Shaper is able to provide clean, accurate cuts. Conclusion In reality, calibrating the Dremel Router / Shaper proved to be a bit of a pain, but its likely youll only have to do this once each time you come to do some routing. For sanding and shaping, it provides both a sturdy mount for your rotary tool, and an effective means of using sanding bands as well as a modest-sized worktable for these tasks. The build quality and instructions arent going to win any awards, and wed prefer if a small selection of cutting and sanding bits were included, but for the price we can t really argue with the latter. The real question is how often youll be using it, and how intense the work will be. It may well pay to opt for a dedicated tool for the job, but youll end up paying more and needing more space.
