Home Made Multi-Router

Our craftsmen make beautiful furniture everyday, but the project we wanted to feature this month is a little different. It may not look as beautiful as furniture to the average eye, but to a home wood shop this creation might be as beautiful as it gets.

Josh, one of The Joinery's craftsmen, built this Multi-Router recently and it is already getting great feedback. This beautiful tool enables him to make mortises or tenon's in his home shop without spending thousands of dollars on a standard multi router or having to make the cuts by hand. You just hook up a router thru the back and get started. He has already used it on a few home projects. To learn more about this project please contact us here at it was a personal project of his.

Untouched 18th Century Woodworking Shop

During a remodel of a preschool in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Michael and Garrison Burrey discovered the oldest known woodworking shop in the United States.  Once used by master carpenter Luther Sampson in the 18th century, this joinery shop still has many of the original benches and shelves in excellent condition. 

Woodshops from the 1700's are very rare, so experts are studding clues to capture how the shop was used.  There are unique shelves throughout for handtools and other items.  Most of the furniture built is believed to be in the federalist style with local woods.  Now they are working on getting the building as a national historic landmark. Read more about this woodshop at the Discovery News Website here.
