Hello All,

For those who have been following my router table building adventures, I am pleased to announce that it is a fully functioning table of routing. I love it. I am especially pleased with the dust collection adapter I created. It not only works, but looks pretty good in my humble opinion. The best part is that I have learned a bunch.

Ok, now to conjure up ideas for my next adventure. :-)

Thanks,

Brian

Great looking router table. Please blog about how your dust collection performs. The tool I most dislike in my shop is the porter cable router I own. It scares me to death and dusts everything up in 2 minutes. Maybe a router table like yours would be a better option.

Congratulations on finishing the table

Looks really good Brian .My top on my router table has hinges also it makes bit changing much easier.
If you have a table saw how about an outfeed table as a next project? Or cross cut sled?

Chelios,

I have had several people, including my mom, ask about how the dust collectin works. I think I am going to write about that for tomorrow’s blog.

a1Jim,

Thanks Jim. I don’t have a table saw yet. I have several ideas for my next project, I may do several small jigs or wood tools, to mix it up a bit. I just don’t know yet. It is fun to think about though. I do appreciate the suggestions. If I had a table saw, I would definitely want an outfeed table.

Davidroberts,

I enjoy checking where my readers live, and I did notice that there are 6 readers from the great state of Texas, now I realize who is the person in Houston. Very cool. There also seems to be two readers in Barker, one in Manchaca, one in Euless and Addison. I am still amazed how my little online diary can reach people all over the country and world. Yesterday I had a reader from Calcutta. How cool is that?

Don,

Thanks! I am pretty happy with it. Now I need to make some accessories and perhaps give it a name.
