« Part 1: Deciding on materials and design Part 2 of Addison's Crib series no next part

So have you ever been working on something, then decide, hey, this would be a lot easier if I had “insert tool here”? Definitely happened to me.

I bought a grizzly polar bear in January for my birthday and had been planning on building on to it. Like many here, I work out of my garage so space is of great importance. For the crib, I knew I would need a router table. I had been using a scrap piece of plywood with the router mounted in it. I figured it was time for an upgrade.

I started with a poplar frame

Then added a plywood table and a rockler insert. I had some extra t track laying around so I added it too. Last I built a fence that clamps to my table saw fence. The dust collection is ok with the top, but I need to add a box under it for more.

I’ve been needing to do this really badly, my tablesaw has terrible wings on it that aren’t flat to the cast iron and this has been the solution I’ve thought of. Looks like you’ve done a good job of it.
