Default Door Bench?

Guys and Gals,

After working over 5 years (off and on as I needed to do a door), I think I have finally come up with a design for a "door bench" that can be added to the EZ-One. I have started doing a video on using the door bench setup I now have on my router/sanding bench, but I cannot do a live video for the design I have for the EZ-One since my EZ-One is an older model, and would not work well for this idea. My question is would you guys be interested in pictures/videos showing the EZ-One Door Bench design?

I'm asking if there is interest because I'm rather busy and this project would take a while to put together. If there is not much interest, I won't spend as much time on it now. I will do the project, I just need to know if I should make it a priority. I have attached a drawing of the bench on what I think is the current EZ-One.

I don't use pre-hung doors, as I make the jamb and casing out of oak, so I use the bench to:
  1. Rout the hinge mortises on the door and the jamb at the same time.
  2. Rout the lock-set mortise in the door.
  3. Rout the strike plate mortise in the jamb.
  4. Rout the hole for the latch in the jamb.
  5. Drill the holes in the door for the lock-set.
  6. Plane the relief angle on the latch side of the door.
I have tried the jigs that are available for routing the mortises, and I find them difficult to use and lacking overall.

Let me know if you are interested in seeing this in the near future or just whenever.

Dik, I'm definitely interested, but no need to make it a priority- 'whenever' is fine with me.
Thanks for doing this,
Rick

Okay, I'll work on getting something together, but don't hold your breath, it might take a while. I'm a bit rusty at producing content, as it has been a while.

Before too long, I'll probably be posting my SketchUp model of the latest EZ-One (as I understand it to be) on the 3D Warehouse. I just need to go over it again.

Dik,
I could send you my model of the EZ-One. It is up to date with what is being shipped.

Dik,
I enjoy seeing your 'articles' and videos. No hurry, though. They picture you posted is thought provoking...

Dik,

Your drawings and videos are always great. Even if they don't directly apply to my projects at the time, I try to glean the conceptual elements and file them in my "gray matter cabinet" away for other kinds of projects.

Are those B-300 mounts on the upper corners of the door? I can't quite tell what they are nor the purpose from the single drawing.
