I recently added a router table extension to my table saw. I have a very small shop and thought it would be a great space saver. In retrospect this was a horrible idea with the amount of larger panels that I cut. The idea was to rip then round over on one machine top.
I took the right wing (router table top) off the table saw and set forth to make a standard free standing router table.
I wanted to use excess material that I had on hand. The title “hodge podge” fits this project perfectly. I used all materials I had on hand, ply, melamine, mdf, pine, oak etc. Everything was fair game. It definitely won’t win any awards but it is free (scrap).
I added a HF foot switch to turn the router on/off. Right hip turns it on and off.
The real fine wood workers will probably scoff at my construction quality build on this router table.
I do appreciate feedback.
Thanks for looking,
