This is a router table I finally completed; it had been in work for a long time while working other projects. The top is two 3/4 inch MDF sheets laminated together with formica on each side. As you can see in the second picture I goofed on the hole for the insert plate, but was able to fill in the gaps with epoxy resin. With a shop vac attached, the dust collection works much better than expected. I can adjust the vacuum below the router with a simple rotating stopper to divert more vacuum to the fence and vice versa. Thanks for looking.

That is a really nice router table, GMman! That reminds me, I’ve got to make me one too!

You did a great job on your router table. I know you’ll make good use of it.

Great looking router table. I hope to build one after my present project (A & C style sideboard). I have mine (Craftsman) mounted in a work bench right now, but don’t like it. Recently bought a Bosch combo kit, much better router, so it deserves a much better table. Again great table, thanks for sharing.
