Getting tired of trying to handhold the router to do anything, I decided to make a table since I’m cheap and the wife is … er
No pictures yet as normal for me because frankly it was the first time I’ve built something like this and secondly, I did it from my mind and not from any set of plans. Last but not least, it’s ugly as sin!
What it DOES do though, is WORK. Pretty much everything is complete except finishing touches on the fence (bought the wrong type of screw handles) and installing the dust ports I’ve made but yesterday I did install the router and use it to do some freehand edges with very good results.
Construction is very simple. I used 1/2” MDF for the top and back brace, and used 3/4” plywood for the (2) legs. My router is a little PC 690 and the base is screwed to the underside of the top. Changing bits isn’t too bad but it’s just as easy to remove the motor from the base and do it.
Once I’ve finished it completely I’ll see if I can get some photos that’s aren’t quite so hideous, at least to show what I did. It’s far from being perfect but is easy to do for someone starting out with $0 to spend on one. Had it not been for my son, it probably would have only taken an hour or less to do (not including glue drying time).
