  • Router Question??

    I made a frame for a relief carving I did and I wanted to set in the relief in the back side of the frame. I routed a groove in the back and the router seemed to burn the wood alot. I haven't had that much experience routing wood. Is that typical?? I wanted to dress up the front side of the frame but left it smooth, fearing random burn marks on the wood. Is my bit to dull? Any comments are appreciated. Skratch

        The problem you are having might be that you are trying to make to deep of a cut. If you make many shallow cuts rather than one deep cut it many take care of the problem. Another thing you might check is weather you have a bit with a bearing guide or just a fixed stud guide. I hope this helps.

          He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

          Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

          I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

          You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
