    LINKS to sources (eg. Amazon) fortable, bits, and all things shown in the video would be nice.
    Yes, I see woodpecker; but the other stuff too.

    Beautiful work. That router probably cost more than most of the cars I’ve owned.

  3. Frank McKenzie on July 23, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    how about taking a little off for wood movement on that panel

  4. Stewart McManus on July 23, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Very informative, thank you for that.

  5. Claude Elliott on July 23, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Nice work! Just takes a $1000.00 plus or minus investment in a router table!! I’ll hold my breath waiting for Santa Claus but I’m afraid he’s lost my address!!

    Kiss that ball bearing 💋

    It’s impossible to get such sophisticated equipment you have.

  9. Robbie the Robot on July 23, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Note- if using solid wood panels do not glue the panel to the frame and be particularly careful not to get glue on the corners of the panel when assembling the frame. This is because the solid panels will expand and contract with changes in humidity and must be free to do so. The panels are apt to split if not free to move.

    Woodpeckers has different types of router tables. Which model are you using?

  11. Alakay on July 23, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Thanks for the video! I just picked up a router from a nice older man. Thought I was just buying the router, but he pulled out a router table top. I was so excited, as I was just going to make a basic table myself.

  12. Steve Rochon on July 23, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    I stopped watching after the first tip…..Jesus, man! Buy a hand plane!

  13. max wang on July 23, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    I’m very impressed the router table, especially the clamping jig which was something that I have been contemplating for long. Thanks for sharing. Hope one day I can have one of this nice table, and the skills!

  14. Sherry Evans on July 23, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Wow! I like that router table. Where did you purchase and what brand, please! Thank you.

  15. James Ellis on July 23, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Love your channel, wish you would come back and do more videos.

  16. BH Craft on July 23, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    I always hear you talking about your Incra setup. Thoughts on the Incra vs Woodpeckers? Great video!

  17. Michael Was on July 23, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Great vid!

  18. John Walker on July 23, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Well, we’ve all got equipment like that haven’t we?

  19. K. A. on July 23, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Just kiss the ball bearing. Wonder how soft his kisses are. Should ask his wife if she felt any kisses over the year (he is measuring this exactly) 🤣🤣🤣
    But anyway, great vid, great ideas. It is a pitty not to get this router table in germany and with metric measurement…

  20. Jay Harney on July 23, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    What I wouldn’t give for that table!! Wow!!

  21. Stéphane FERNIQUE on July 23, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Thanks for your excellent vidéo congratulations from France i expect to see your others vidéos

  22. TheAudioman15 on July 23, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Everything from coping and onward went way over my rookie head! 😂 But very good info until then

  23. Favian Reyes on July 23, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Master 👌

  24. Andre Noble on July 23, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    That’s a nice table

  25. 300 blAKout on July 23, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    Your router table makes me a little uncomfortable. That’s pretty much cheating… I’m jealous. Nice job, great video

  26. Benji and Mckenzie on July 23, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Fantastic work. Your are a true professional.

  27. kedzierskik on July 23, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    This movie is very interested and demonstrates such things which I haven’t realized that exists. Please let me know what type of router do you use, This device has impressive way of adjustment, so I would like to buy something like this one.
    Do you know if it is possible to buy such machine in Europe (particularlu in Poland where I live).
    I appeciate your response in advance.

  28. Bill coley on July 23, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Sir you are not preaching to the choir. If any of us had a set up like that we wouldn’t be watching

  29. HawkeyeSTiGuy on July 23, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    There sure is a lot of "kissing" going on in this video. Lol.

  30. Capt. Paul Savoy on July 23, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    what kind of wood did you make the "door frame" out of? I have some in my shop just like that and I have no idea what it is

  31. Cindy L on July 23, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Hi Guy- this is very helpful. Wondering what kind of wood did you use for the raised panel? I’m having a hard time finding solid wood in a width wide enough for the panel. Was it actually separate boards edge-glued together? I know plywood is also an option….but I’d rather solid hardwood if I can find it. Thx.

  32. Keith Cross on July 23, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    I dunno…there’s a lot of kissing in this video! Lol! There’s also a whole lot of good info – thanks sir!

    One of the best masters on the internet and beautiful quality of camera shots and video a resounding success. I have subscribed to your channel … We appreciate your great knowledge and patience in producing such great videos. Many are unaware of the immense work to produce a video like this … Muchas gracias…

  34. Fist Bump on July 23, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    As a professional woodworker of 40 years there’s a little problem with this first tip for trimming.. to prevent tear out or chipping a router always run backwards or clockwise… the last bit of the cut can be made in a counterclockwise direction going slow and not stopping at all… this is a fail-proof method for a clean chip free tear out free finished profile.. just sayin..

  35. Kurt Sweetser on July 23, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    What does the feather board do

  36. Riley Parker on July 23, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    The fence being flush with the bearing on the first cut isn’t necessary. That’s literally the point of the bearing. It’s a flush trim bit. Awesome router table by the way!

  37. Simon Lunt on July 23, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Very nice router table l am lucky with working in joinery shop we have a spindle moulder it’s always nice to see what other joiners do you can learn other ways thank you and stay safe 🇬🇧

  38. Tim Dales on July 23, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    WOW! That was awesome! Thanks! I can only dream of having a router table like that 😎

  39. John Bristol on July 23, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    Beautiful work. That router probably cost more than most of the cars I’ve owned.

  40. Charlotte H on July 23, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    Did anyone else see the micro-adjust dial rotate slightly at 8:31?

  41. Michael Smith on July 23, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    Very nice video. I see it was from awhile ago though. I was wondering about your router table. I’ve been interested in routing and router tables. Can you tell me about your table? Make, Model, etc. Thanks for posting a great video.

  42. John Pejakovich on July 23, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    Alot of work for a 5 min job with a mini and flush bit

  43. by John on July 23, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Excellent video! What brand of bead and stile bits are you using? I assumed they were made by WoodPecker, but when I went to their website, I was surprised to see, that they only seem to carry bits from other manufacture’s (Whitside & Amana).

  44. Yours Anonymously on July 23, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Awesome improvising video! Youtube threw in a lot of ads though

  45. Dan Farbecker on July 23, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    Nice add for Woodpecker products. Great tools….if I ever win the powerball I will buy some.

  46. Larry Barry on July 23, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    I would suggest using a hand plane, at an angle, to smooth where the hardwood used to edge band the plywood is “proud.”

  47. Fly gal on July 23, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Thank you 🙋🏼‍♀️

  48. CHUCKYCHUCKYBOBUCKY on July 23, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    Oh my god that Woodpeckers router table 🤤

  49. patrick dunn on July 23, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    I just looked at the Woodpecker router table at Woodcraft yesterday, it doesn’t come with those million dollar goodies he’s using

  50. Michael DeQuatro on July 23, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    Great video…but it’s above my paygrade 🙂
