Not really all that involved, I think it took me all of maybe 10 minutes to put this together, but thought it might be useful for others…
I’m reorganizing my shop, and the only logical place for the router table was on the outfeed side of my table saw. I didn’t want to have to raise the table itself up to the right height for an outfeed table, but I also didn’t want to go without outfeed support.
Turns out that a 3/4” piece of MDF with the dowel you see (salvaged from an old baby crib… never EVER throw away wood, my friends!) was the perfect height. Just needed to make some mortises in some scrap poplar for the pre-cut tenons, glue and screw them to the MDF, drill a couple of holes for the knobs and t-slot bolts, and we’re done.
It’s (obviously) adjustable forward and back, and side to side sitting in the t-slot at the top of my router table fence, and the top of the dowel is just about 1/8” lower than the top of the table saw. The holes are just slightly over sized, so the dowel spins freely. Nice!
