« Part 9: Router Table Part 10 of New shop! series Part 11: Out of my way air compressor »

Just finished the construction on the router table. Pretty happy with it.

My electrician friend scoffed (rightfully so) at my switch because I didn’t mount it in a box. I cut out the old switch location and installed it properly.

Not many practical color choices of laminate at the home center, so black it is. I used Incra T-Track and a Woodpecker router plate that will hold a Triton 3.125 HP router. Given the Triton has a tool to adjust the height from above the table, and can change the bit from above the table, I didn’t feel a router lift was needed.

I didn’t want the fence to be black given I often make marks on the fence for stoped cuts, etc, so I just used Melamine. Not perfect or pretty, but very functional.

Can’t wait to use it, huge upgrade from my old one. Most excited about having dust collection!!

All that is left to do is a bit of finish sanding to break the edges and put some finish on the Oak parts and plumb the dust collection to it. (bleh)
