I´ve been watching Norm Abrams a lot on youtube, and wanted to build my own router table. I am very satisfied with how it turned out. Some errors along the way, but this was my first tool-build and I learn as I go.

Looks great, Hank. What kind of finish did you use for the face frame?

Thank you all. As mentioned, this was my first tool build and it will indeed serv me well. I´ve already used it to build my drill press table and other furnitures.

CB_Cohick: I only put on finishing oil from a Norwegian brand. We are not as lucky as the lumberjacks in U.S.A which has a lot more to choose from when it comes to staining and finishing.

Great looking router table—I love the drawer pulls! I’m sure you’ll get a lot of good use out of it!

Nice, I like the drawers all around the bottom. Nothing like having your stuff organized and easy to use.
