| I would like to build some barrister bookcases, end tables, wine rack | etc. for my new house which doesn't lend itself to standard size store | bought items. I currently own a Porter Cable 690 router. I have been | looking at router tables and am interested in the Jointech | CabinetMaker's system with a phenolic table. The reason I am | interested in the Jointech system is that I don't have a lot of room, | in fact I don't have a real shop, and my tools are stored in a | building where the summer temperature reaches 105 degrees (Arizona). | | My thought was that the phenolic table could handle the heat better | and with a good router-table-fence combination I could avoid needing | many separate jigs made out of wood or MDF which I don't have the | tools to build or the space to store. | | I have basic hand and power tools and the skills to use them, but | don't have the space to purchase a planer, table saw etc. So my | question is, given what I want to build, do I have a chance of turning | out reasonable items with basic power tools, and a good | router-table-fence combination, or should I resign myself to the fact | that I will need a whole lot more tools to do a decent job. Thanks in | advance to anyone who takes the time to respond to this posting from | an IT guy who wants to do something besides mess around with computers | in his spare time.
