Although the turned legs give it the appearance of a table, the island is 36"H, or standard counter height. An ideal lunch counter and great for preparing food, this island comes with three practical drawers and a work surface made of solid 1 ½” maple wood.

ROUTERS

The router is a motorized tool that can be equipped with a variety of cutters, or bits, making it extremely versatile. Router bits exist for making mouldings, carving grooves (e.g. for inserting drawer bottoms or cabinet door panels), giving a more professional-looking finish to the edges of pieces of stock (boards, shelves, tables), planning surfaces and making dovetail joints. Router bits are often sold in sets, usually with illustrations of the patterns that they can cut.

Depending on the model of router and type of work involved, the user either moves the router along the fixed material (e.g. to follow curves) or moves the material itself along a fixed router table (e.g. to carve grooves). A number of routers are designed to be used either way and can be fastened upside down under a router table.
