A Knockdown Router Table

This interlocking design needs no fasteners and stores flat

When Massachusetts carpenter Joe Lanza changed his job-site tool setup from a heavy contractor saw on a rolling cabinet to a portable tablesaw, he discovered that he liked having less weight to push around but that he missed having a router-table extension wing. That led him to design and build a knockdown router table. Joe cut the pieces for the router table from a single 5x5 sheet of Baltic-birch plywood, and topped the table with a piece of 3/4-in.-thick medium density fiberboard.
