Very nice rendition. Is that Walnut trim?

The trim is some walnut left over from another project.

Thanks for all the comments

I want to make a router table and norm’s design seems to be the favourite. Do you forsee any drawbacks?

BTW nice job.

The table was very easy to build. I think it would be a great and usefull project for any woodworker.

Stanley, you’ll really enjoy the router table. I built one about 5 months ago, and it handles the job well. After looking around and getting ideas, I decided to build Norm’s version. I have 2 tables, and this one si the “cats meow” Enjoy!

I have one and love it. If you are limited on space, it is a big router table. But other than that it is “da bomb”

Great Job,
I made Norms table also .. out of Walnut and Maple.
Yours looks almost exactly like mine. For the door I made some raised panels and used magnetic catches instead of hinges. That way I can easily pop it on and off.
Anyhow it’s a great table, you will really like it.
All the Best!
