I got frustrated with the bench top router tables that I had, and was running a lot of stock that was 8 ft long and having a hard time working it, so I got a hair up my *ss and built a 15 ft long router table to house the bench top tables. The table was cut from the economy bin Lowes 2×6x8’s and cheap ½ and ¾ inch plywood. We have a cheap outlet place not far away that I got the laminate top material from as well. The micro-adjusters for the router tables were made using T-nuts 1/4 -20 carriage bolts, nylock nuts and a nut welded on to the end of the bolt. I haven’t done much counter top work in a lot of years, and forgot to check the hex nut on the router bit, and it came of at one end of the front of the project. Can’t afford to by more of the top material, so I will live with it and use it as a reminder to check the bearing screws. I also added 4 20 amp duplex outlets to the front of the table.
