So as a tribute to our long lost Norm here is my Deluxe Router Station Build. Only change I made was to use mahogany instead of oak on all the faces and router top edges. I did score on the router plate though and found it on a clearance table at Rockler for $10. I haven’t connected all the dust collection on the back though I do have the tubes just need to take the time and connect it up!

Hey Brad, this is beautiful. You shouldn’t make RT more beautiful than my bedroom furniture.
Are you going to make featherboards for your RT from figured burl?... LOL just kidding Brad.
Keep up your excellent work!

Very nice job Brad, I built one last year that looks almost identical to yours and am very pleased with it.
I am sure you will enjoy yours very much.

Almost a great job Brad, but if I’m looking at it right, your router is upside down! LOL

Brad, this looks like a wonderful addition to your shop. Not only it is functional but it also just looks darn good as well. Norm would put his seal of approval on this version without a doubt. :)

I have been meaning to get started on one of these as well, but just have never made the time to do so. This one certainly is an inspiration to get started.

Thanks for the inspiration Brad. One of these days I will grace my shop with a router table. I guess we all deserve one. For so many years I have just used my outfeed table.

Very handsome,
