A short while back I found a large piece of black phenolic that was destined for the local landfill.
I saved the piece from this terrible fate and turned it in to this…..
There have been times I wish I had two router table to save setup and re setup time. I think this is going to work out great for my availible space and needs. I bought the fence at the woodshows back in April. The fence wouldn’t work with my old table without some modifications so this worked out great.
This phenolic seems to be heavier and harder than the stuff they use on the commercial tops. I had to make very shallow passes with the router, and I was using a high quality spiral bit. At one point I was making a lot of smoke and even sparks which started a small fire. You really have to be patient milling this stuff.
