Do you know when it was built?

Not sure! I will see if I can find out.

I guess my wife's great grandmother had it at the house and it was included with the house in Cannon Beach when they sold it to her grandma. There may have been some info on the back, but it got painted over... Probably came out of Portland is my guess given the family history.

We have a similar one we need to pick up from Southern Indiana at some point. Awesome piece of furniture.

Gaming table project update:
I have finished assembly of the lower section of the table. This included cutting a groove in the aprons and fitting the plywood panel, adding a reinforcement strip on the aprons to help support the arm rail (not really seen in the picture), the arm rail itself, and rounding over all of the sharp edges and corners.

I have the tabletop panels glued up but need to trim and smooth it. I also need to add a lip under the tabletop so it stays securely on the table frame. Once that is done, it's time for add finish which I'll be using tung oil and paste wax

So bought a Bosch router 1.5 years ago. Just pulled it out of the box for the first time and installed in the Rockler router table kit setup I bought and put together this week.

Hope to use it to build this storage setup for the cart its on. Router cart plans.

I need to get me a router table like that. Keep us updated on how well it works. I'd have a nice router for a while (maybe 6 years?) but never use it. I do use my smaller Dewalt battery palm router now and then, though.

Are you going to do the storage mods?

That looks great, man. I love the grain - that's really gonna pop.

Man, get some dust collection on there. Router tables make SO MUCH DUST.

Bep, once you get a few different bits, routers are just about my favorite power tool. Cutting a groove? Router table or handheld with an edge guide. Easing over corners? Palm router with a 1/8 roundover. Make two things line up? Flush trim bit. Inlay something? Palm router with a straight bit and do it freehand, finish with chisels. Making multiple identical parts? Make a template, cut close, flush trim/template bit on the table or hand held.

At this point, I've got a medium size one with a fixed and plunge base, a 3hp plunge that lives in the router table for now, a cheapo trim router that I got at a garage sale, and I wound up using it enough that I upgraded to a cordless DeWalt trim router.

For now I have a shop vac I can hook up when I use it, dust collection is on the list for the future along with a jointer and a thickness planer, lol. I also got a Ryobi battery router for "free" when I bought the battery kit (2 x 4ah batteries and a charger) for $99. I will be using the Bosch 1617 I have attached to the router table and the Ryobi router to build the shelves/drawer on the cart.

I would definitely go for the thickness planer before the jointer if you need to decide. I've had a lot of luck doing "good enough" jointing with a table saw jig. But there isn't really a similar replacement for the thickness planer.

Tacklife Digital Height Gauge. Seems nice for a router table or table saw:

I just bought a 5 piece set of 4" brass setup bars for now, figured that would be good enough to start with.

I've been wanting some 1-2-3 blocks and setup bars and may splurge on some decent ones. I think Stumpy Nubs has some he recommends.

Edit: Looks like he did a recent video about some accessories for them, too:

Links in the video description.

Yeah, those are on the list as well, I saw that video the other day.

I've been getting by with a set of brass setup blocks, and sometimes a set of digital calipers. I do want to get a digital angle gauge. Right now, I've got a bunch of bevel gauges which mostly work, but sometimes I want to have the actual angle, either for resetting a gauge I bumped, or if I need to figure out the complimentary angles.

First piece cut and attached to stand, 29 to go, and no, I won't bore everyone with a picture of all 29 pieces/steps, lol.
