It will be 3/4" pine shelving.

You can make multiple depths but I would not get any deeper than 3/8"

Its all about planning your design with your BITS in mind.
As you draw each line on your work you need to think about which bit you will use to make that cut.

When I am working with one router then I will make sure to make ALL the different cuts that require that bit.
Then I move on to the next bit and do all of the cuts that require it.

Otherwise you are constantly switching out bits and that wastes time.

Hey, Monkeyman! Please count me in for Oct 13! I have a router and some bits.

Thanks again for hosting the crawl last weekend. We had a blast!

Here is my first attempt at a design for your router class. Is this the right idea for what you want to teach?

Absolutely. Good start

It can be a panel... like what you have designed or a sign that would have some text in it.

As you draw each line think about which router bit you would be using to make that cut. Its important to have that thought out.

I am signed up to use your equipment, what bits will I have available? For the turtle I was thinking of using a bit that makes a straight cut (90 degrees from the surface). I have no experience doing this other than routing an edge to make a picture frame.

Thank you for all your help.

OK everybody. If anyone else wants to participate please sign up soon. I need time to go purchase more saw horses, router bits, and routers.

Please send me a PM if you are interested.

Should be fun.

OK Fellow Router Artisans....

Im going to shut off sign ups on FRIDAY OCT 5th so that I can spend this weekend purchasing the correct number of routers, bits and tables for our event. Unfortunately this takes some prep so I cannot accomodate last minute signups (unless you bring all of your own stuff)

If you have any interest and can commit to the date then please let me know asap.

Should be fun and significantly cooler weather than the crawl.

We will be going to the Untouchables show that night so our day will wrap up no later than 5pm.

You can arrive as early as 9:30am if you like. Routers start buzzing at 10am.

The student list keeps getting shorter which means more access to tools for you and an intimate setting to really share and learn from the others. Hoping to see some of the other San Diego carvers and artisans if you have time to hang out.

Its going to be a good time.

If anyone wants to go direct to Dons from our place just bring a change of clothes. We will be going as well. You can clean up before you go. Maybe even a carpool if it works for you.

We are 71 Miles from Dons.

Monkeyman,

What a great idea wish I could be there.
MM have you seen this router?
Would you say that having more power would help
or be needed for doing this project or no?
What about the bit shaft size, ie do you need to be
able to use 1/2 inch shaft bits or no.
Going to get one of these routers just don't know which one.

Holy Crap.

Thats a really nice router. Festool makes killer stuff.

I have found that extra power is not needed because I dont operate the router at full speed anyways.

Who doesnt like nice tools but I dont think its necessary.

1/4" or 1/2" shanks are fine. It doesnt matter.

Don't go and look at one as it will
be hard not to buy.
The chip removal and the smooth way this tool
works is what hooked me.
Price not so much.
