Been wanting to build both a new router table and a face frame clamping table. Came up with the idea of combining the two but not being sure how I will like it I decided to use my old out feed table & cabinet as a trial run. If I like the table then I will build a nice cabinet under the table. Over the next few months I will be building a complete kitchen for my mother-in-law, I figure that should be a petty good test run. The lift is the PLR2 fitted with a Milwaukee 3 1/2 router. the fence is an Incra 32” ultra positioner I had laying around fitted with an Incra wonder fence. The blue is the Kreg Klamp Trak while the red is purple heart I shaped like the Klamp Trak simply to be a place holder until I decide if I like this design enough to purchase a couple more sections of Klamp Trak.

Ken looks great and I know it going to be a joy to use, just received my LSSSys. yesterday. I sold my Ultra of 20 years, what a great piece of equipment. I would love to have the same set up but not enough room right of the TS. Thank for posting and stay safe…BC

Now that is a nice addition to your shop. Great idea on combining the two into one table.

Your table is a great looking and functional design Ken. Let the fun begin… It looks like you are mounting your positioner bracket on a board on adjustable tracks. Is that done so you can remove it when using the table for face frame clamping with the Kreg clamps? Good idea. It must be nice to have an Incra 32” ultra positioner laying around. I bought the LS system back in December and it is great. Definitely takes up a lot os space but worth it.
