Carriages For Bits

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

I made all of the components for the carriages which will hold the router bits for my bit storage system.  I have 38 carriages in total, which have two 1/4″ holes and one 1/2″ hole for different sized shanks.  If I have a large 1/2″ shank bit, the two 1/4″ holes will remain empty and I can slide the carriages to make room.  I am really going to get some use out of this thing and I am very excited to finish.

Bit Storage Case Part 1

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

I finished the main case to my router bit storage system and released part 1 of the video series.  This weekend I hope to have the individual router bit holders finished and I’ll release part 2 not soon after.

I hope you dig it.

Fighting the Clock

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

I glued the case together tonight and it was a race against the clock.  I had twenty loose tenons to glue into their respective mortises, but the process went relatively smoothly.

Next up is making the carriages that hold the router bits.  Gaining on it.
