A Week In The Workshop 153


Direct video link - https://youtu.be/bxyj1rieA3g


In this weeks chatty vlog I go through some of the slightly odd questions I've had about the shelf pin jig (video now ranking as another 1/10 at the time of writing, woo!) and talk through some plans for the next video, including some entertaining materials from Finsa, and I go through an option for the shelf pin jig that I perhaps haven't explained very well; maybe there's space for a follow-on video...🤔


As always, thanks you so much for being part of Plus, enjoy the rest of the weekend, and I'll catch you in the next one.

Peter - Great explanation. That jig is quick enough it makes sense to make one even if only for a few pieces. Thanks so much! Have a good week!

Thanks Evan! Yes, that was the idea, make it quick & easy enough to be worth knocking one up even if you only have a couple of cabinets to do. 👍

Hi Peter great video as always. Love the new watch. For me if I make the jig I would look to use an 18mm guide bush simply so I can dedicate one router to use in both my lose tenon jig and shelf pin jig just by swapping the cutter

Thanks Martin! Ha! I've since changed to a strap that's a bit less 'shouty' - stealth watch! And yes, an 18mm guide bush will work fine, but you do get better DC with a larger hole. 👍

Looking forward to seeing drawers for the cubes. In the head thinking space for an alcove at the moment waiting for storage and also CD storage above and drawers on the cubes might look a bit tidier and less prone to gathering dust and that happens by magic in a Victorian house!

I'll keep the pencil and paper ready to adapt whatever you come up with.

Googling guide bushes and their uses comes up with shedloads of stuff. My Makita palm router bought to rectify a serious milling problem on Shou sugi ban cladding on our extension did not come with a baseplate that would take one and I did not need one for that job but I found one…

Poor description on my part Peter. The plunge base comes with a gaping hole that requires a special adapter to take guide bushes. I changed the sub-base to accept standard Trend guide bushes when I bought the loose tenon jig
