Here it is:

And the view of the router from the bottom:

You can see the clamp and depth adjustment knob are easily accessible, but if I wanted I could use a T-wrench to adjust the depth from the top of the table. I’m not too concerned about that, since with this Ryobi you need to release that clamp so you have to duck down under the table anyway.

So, it works, well enough at least for what I need it to. I’m planning on using it to rout out the dadoes for the raised panel doors I’m doing. I’ll probably use this now to create the tenons for the rails as well, so I don’t have to cut them on my table saw like I was planning.

Looks like it will work. Dados on raised panel doors?

@Stefang: I found this method for creating raised panel doors and thought it would be easier and nicer looking than just cutting angled bevels. So it’s possible I’m mixing up my terminology being a newbie, but isn’t the groove the panel sits in a dado? That groove is what I’d be routing out.

No, It’s just a groove. Sorry I didn’t intend to be sarcastic, I thought maybe you were doing something I hadn’t seen before, and so that’s what my question was about. A dado as far as I know is a groove that runs across the grain rather than with the grain. Woodworking terminology is even worse for me because I read a lot of English and Norwegian stuff too, so often I can’t remember the right terminology when I’m communicating with someone. Good luck with your routing!
