New addition to my family…
my tool family, that is.
I’ve needed a router table forever, so I built one. The fence is in the spirit of Norm’s from his router table special. I haven’t really used it yet, but I’m looking forward to building my next bookcase.
Comments and critiques are welcome.
There are many furniture pieces that would envy that piece of work.
Suuuhhhweeeet!!!!! Happy routing.
Always remember those first immortal words that Adam said to Eve, â€œYouâ€™d better stand back, I donâ€™t know how big this thingâ€™s going to get.â€
Looks Great! It looks like that is a Lee Valley table insert. I have been considering doing the same thing you did. How do you like the insert so far?
The router plate is from Rouseau, I think I bought it at Woodcraft. It's flat enough and comes with everything you need to set it up.
The T-tracks are mixed. The ones in the table are from Rockler. The one in the fence is a Kreg. It's a little smaller and can use 1/4" hex nut bolts instead of the more expensive flat head bolts that are sold with the tracks. I liked this feature, it adds flexibility to your jig making.
I still have to add a router lift, someday. I also want to close in the bottom half of the table to catch the dust better.
I was thinking some routers could be adjusted with a long hex wrench (or some other method), like maybe 3.5 hp Milwaukee. Then you don't have to drop the bucks for the lift.
One MAJOR FLAW tho.
You didn't build it for MY shop!
