  1. Choosing the Best Router Table for Your Shop


    If you’re in the shopping for a new router table, but you’re feeling lost in all the component options, Rockler’s new online Router Table Configurator can help! We’ll click our way through it, in this demo video.
    A router table is unlike most other machines in a woodshop because you can customize it just the way you want it. There are different kinds of tables, fence systems, choices for hanging the router itself, and base options. And those are just the major pieces! Then, there’s all the different accessory options to consider, too – which is a GOOD thing.
    Rockler’s new online Router Table Configurator makes the shopping process easier than ever.

    If you use drawers as one way to organize your shop, you’ve probably got at least a few drawers that serve as “catch-alls” for anything and everything. And sometimes “junk drawers” are fine, because the contents of the drawer aren’t valuable or fragile or part of an important set. When it comes to valuable tools, like hand planes, the last thing you want to do is toss these into a drawer. They deserve dedicated storage where other tools and supplies can’t damage them. And tools with sharp, delicate edges — like these chisels — deserve special protection too. For these sorts of situations and more, Rockler’s Foam Organizers for drawers can help.
