Hello tool making veterans! I am building a combination router table and table saw station. For all of you who already have router tables, what is the best table top and fence material to use?
I found a router table plan from 1985, and the builder did the following:
top layer – plastic laminate
second layer – 1/8” hard board
middle layer – 3/4” hardwood plywood
fourth layer – 1/8” hard board
last layer – plastic laminate
Sounds flat, smooth and strong! I would probably add on more layer of 3/4” ply in the middle and put a hard wood border around the table top.
Would you share your past successes and failures with router table tops? Thanks in advance for the advice and input!
