« Part 1: Inspirational Part 2 of misc series Part 3: horizontal router table (cont) »

Inspired by Stumpy Nubs’ horizontal router table. I decided to make a run at my own design. I used a mix of what I saw Stumpy doing and the one that MLCS Woodworking.

This is a design-in-progress as well as a work in process. My design drawings are incomplete.

I started on the build this week. There are a lot of little things I am working out.

I am going to use this with my Freud router. It has a router table base that will mount onto this so I can switch the router from it’s primary use as a plunge router, to this and back easily.

I’ll update when there’s more progress.

I love homemade tools. It is about the only way to get something like this – the comercial versions are so expensive. Keep it comming.
