The router is in part one
This is what I am making my NEW router table top from
The Old one I bought has been warping more and more over years
This is a manufactured bench top surface I got on eBay for 50 bucks
21”X 48” , Inch and half thick
PVC laminate , Polyurethane (PU) over MDF,, very durable pvc coating
PVC TEXTURED LAMINATE THERMOFUSED 1.5” THICK VACUUMED FORMED ON STRONG MDF.
I think this will be a very stable router table top
I don’t have a Pic of fence as modified, but below is Pic of the ,Vega U50 Table Saw Fence ,That is on my current router table. It has been greatly modified,for use on router table, with dust collection etc.
I will upload Pic, of actual fence later (I bought this fence from a guy for 75 bucks brand-new)
The recessed area on the top, will be in the back so it won’t cause any problems.
I didn’t buy the plate yet, the woodpeckers plate is at the top of my list right now.
I will add more text and pictures as I go.
