Video Tips Wanted…

Video Tips Wanted…

Today’s post is about me wanting you to produce a simple router how to tip. These are very easy to make and I have RF member Harry Sin video to show as an example. How the videos are made is first you take a photo for each step of your how to procedure. Then the second part is open the photo on your desktop and open your audio recorder and talk about what is seen on the opened photo. You need to save each of the photos in a numbered sequence P-1, P-2, P-3 etc…then create each of the audio files and number them as follows, A-1, A-2, A-3 etc…We will produce the video here, so we just need the how to photos and audios…

I know I could probably make these myself but I am more interested to getting tips from you the viewer. Mark from Router Forums is going to add each new video tip to a new section on Router Forums…I am looking for very simple how to procedures like, installing a router bit, using the safety pin, direction of feed, using the jointer fence, etc…

You just need a camera and the sound recorder that comes with your windows program. If you are interested please comment in this post. I will not be making these posts public but will use the email feature to contact you about your proposed how to tip.

Thanks in advance,

Hi folks,

This is Rick Rosendahl and if you are reading this paragraph you are reading a paragraph that has been created by my selected woodworking beginner Harish. Harish has taken up to woodworking due to a change in the economic conditions which cost him his job.

Not only does he feel that he can make a living from woodworking from home but is also enthusiastic about spreading information about how people without jobs or with spare time on their hands can earn an additional income from the comfort of their home with a small investment.

Harish is viewing all the Router Workshop videos, studying the material in detail and then writing about the information he has picked up from a selected video. Looking at the way this man has been going ahead with his job, I feel that his articles can be of interest to those who want to follow his example.

A newcomer to woodworking is putting his education to paper for others to take benefit of which I feel is great. Learning how to use the video library through information that is being provided is a asset. Join this special video series by clicking this link and click the links below to see sample writings. These samples can give you all information you need about the right usage of a router and the many ways you can use it to generate income for yourselves. Don’t miss out on the benefits but start learning today and avail the benefits as many beginners are doing.

Below is a few samples of Harish’s articles on Router Forums.

A Question about Raised Panels…

I have a question from John about making raised panels for a kitchen job….Here is the email question.

Rick,  I am redoing some cabinet doors for a client.  The original doors were made out of MDF on a NC Router.  I do not have a numerically controlled router /table.  I thought of making the drawer fronts and doors out of knotty pine which is inexpensive here.  That sounded good until I measured the raised panel opening in the doors (13″ wide by 19″ long).  How about dividing the raised panel opening into two sections with a horizontal or vertical mullion down the middle of the opening?  What would be your approach?



I have done raised panels up to 15″ wide without any problems. You just need to glue the panels up with 3 to 4″ wide pieces making sure you alternate the grain direction with each new piece added. If you don’t like the idea of making large raised panels then I would go with the 2 panel with the vertical mullion. This choice will make the panel doors look smaller in width and more symmetrical…

Just my 2 cents, does anyone else have an opinion please post in the comment section below.
