  4. A good tip on the use of screw heads for levelling the plate. Some others come with rare earth magents them serve the same purpose.

  6. At least here in Souh Africa, the guys that do granite kitchen tops also have crazy waste of their granite counter top material. And may be willing to give you some. It’s not as easy to work as your chip/particle board top obviously, but it is stronger.

  10. You should see some of the wiring jobs people do here in the U.S. I had to work on and X-ray once that was connected to an orange extension cord that was directly wired to the breaker on the panel.

  11. Another idea is to make the slot in the mdf fence (before assembly of course) and then just a hole in the mdf, to neaten up the front and reduce the number of places that snagging could occur.

  14. Jord,I’ve done similar myself, albeit not finished. Are you going to add some above table height adjustment in the future? Definitely worthwhile!P.s. going to use your tip for making the fence. Haven’t gotten to that part of my construction yet so you’ve timed this well :)Cheers

  19. You are one thorough wood worker, so well done!

  20. Nice build! Any plans to add a mechanism to adjust the height of your router without having to open the cabinet?Also, what router are you using? It’s hard to get fixed-base routers in AU, where did you get yours?

  21. Very nice design. You look rather young to be speaking like a wise old master.PS: add casters to make it mobile?

  22. I love ur vids but I’m just not a fan of AW

    Reply
  23. Nice clean design. Add some blocks to secure some casters to, and I’m off
    and running.
    Don’t hear the term ‘grub screws’ here in the US much. Or ever, for that
    matter….

  24. Very nice,you saved a lot of money building your own table

  25. Good job Jordan! maybe adding wheels/casters would make it even better…
    easier to move if needed…

  26. To level up the base plate, put a rubber o-ring between the base plate.Now
    you can correct the hight of your plate. Just four ring, thats all.
