You can’t buy a great plunge router like the Triton and not make a great router table. I just used my existing workbench added a router plate, mitre track, 4 T-Tracks (for the fence) and mounted the router.
With the size of this table there’s not much I can’t but on here. The only thing I would change is to use a better (metal) router plate.

Hey Kevin
Looks like a full blown winner. The only thing I don’t like about my Triton is that you have to move the plastic guard on the switch to get it to go up in down in your router table.

Great Looking Table! I really like your fence support/adjustment system.

Nice router table.
Did you install “from top of the table router raizer”?

Couldn’t you make it any bigger? How are you going to rout a barn door with that small thing? :)

nice job,thats something i would like to build next. looking at some of your other projects your router table doubles as a work table that would work well for me as i need the space.

Inspiring job. I recently bought the 2 1/2 HP Triton router but soon decided that it was really designed for table use. In a hand held position I find the switch awkward and the dust collection mediocre. So I have been thinking about a table and yours inspires me. I already have a big hunk of Ikea butcher block I took off (& replaced) from my daughters island, so I’m half way there. Two things I would definitely want to do. Add both above & below the table dust collection; and add a safety switch. You could still do both for about $50.
