Re: Router or not?

Welcome to the forum. I tend to agree that a router won't be able to do a round over on a piece like the snake in your link. Looks to me like it's been done by hand.

Re: Mini fix & Maxi fix jigs.........

I had a quick look too, and you need to use an 8mm cutter which in my opinion is too big for an 18mm board as you will only have a max of 5mm either side of the hole. I don't know what everyone else uses on carcase work but I almost always use 5mm domino's.

Very impressive matey. The only thing I would be concerned with is the expansion gap between the boards. From personal experience I don’t think that 1.5mm will be enough - I’d have gone for 3mm and treated them before assembly. I hope I’m wrong as they really do look the business.

Re: Wine rack

That is going to be very difficult to make and get everything to line up. Dowels would be one way of doing the joints, but drilling all the pieces accurately is going to be a PITA even with jigs and a pillar drill. You could try and modify the design and just do lap joints - think garden trellis.
