A friend recently gave me an old router table plate. Before buying an expensive router table, I thought I would give this a try. I had never gotten around to routing a miter slot in my extension table, so i decided to inset the plate in it. The fence is mdf. It has a high and low side and is varnished to make it smoother. I cut off the end of a crevice tool to give me a tapered fitting for dust collection.
I’m really pleased with how it turned out. The top is large enough to support material well and the dust collection is super. I can take the whole thing down when not needed. Best of all I have 0 dollars invested in it.
