So, to save space.in my shop, I constructed a router table to fit between my Delta T3 extentions. 2×4’s and 3/4” Melamine were used with pocket hole screws and glue holding it together. The top sits in really snug, but can be removed if needed. Plus it is smooth. I router the sides so the use the rails for full support and was very fortunate they lined up spot on and it can be removed should the need arise.
Advantages are one more tool of the floor, at a height that is comfortable to use and safely. I can use my TS Fense for the router when needed for jigs, stops etc., adds extra support for cutting and additional work space.
I have not decided yet which router.plate will be used, so any suggestions would apprechiated. Will add additional supports when that is decided.
Anyway, it was fun, my oldest son Thomas was a great assistant. Just need to put some poly on it, cut out and install the plate and all will be well.
