This router table was built 2 years ago just prior to the writing desk I made for my wife. It was actually created specifically for that very project.
Simple construction made from my own design. The frame is made using mortise and tenon joinery of poplar for the base frame, the doors and sides are ¼” birch ply, and the top is ¾” MDF& ¾” Ply, edged in red oak. As you can tell, I was experimenting with staining techniques, hence the finish. The router fence is Freud, which I must admit; I’m not all that thrilled with but it hasn’t caused too many problems so I can’t complain. I have doors both on the front and back for easy access to storage and dust collection.
The miter gauge is made out of scraps and I dadoed the miter slot with multiple passes through the table saw making sure the angle was perpendicular to the router base plate. The top has a few layers of wipe on poly and a good waxing every once in a while keeps it nice and slick.
All in all I’ve been very happy with the result. Thanks for looking.
