I’ve been using a Rockler router table for years. It is the basic metal frame and top. The wheels are literally worn off and it’s just not a steady as I prefer. So here I am routing away yesterday on a project and the table loses a little traction on the floor…..messed up a pattern and the stock I was using….not to mention the safety concern.
So later yesterday I had to stop by Home Depot, also known as Hundred Dollars, to pick up a few small things for honey-dos around the house when I came across this seamingly good deal on a sheet of plywood. Well, honey-dos didn’t even get started but was able to get mose of the carcass cut out for a router cabinet. I’m thinking I might need half another sheet of plywood for the back and hope to use scraps I have already to make the doors and drawers. Estimating at the current investment of $25 for the plywood, I’ll be able to get this completed with less than $100.
So the next time you see a sheet of plywood at Home Depot, there’s a router table just screaming to get out..ha. I’ll post updates as I go.
