The only place I could find room for the router was under the bench. Since this is my first try, I used as much scrap material for all the R&D. I still have to add a couple of features and work with them. Then I will make a permanent unit mounted under the bench.
I welded up some slides and a locking mechanism to make it solid when I’m routing. The melamine for the table is one and a half inches thick, 34 inches long and 23 and a half inches wide. I have room for the fence with no problems.
Well this is where I am at today.
No.1…Cutting my first dado with my new router setup.
No.2…Router and lift installed and working on a fence.
No.3…Working on my second fence.
No.4…ready to slide back under the bench.
No.5…Router and lift installed with first fence.
No.6…Miter track and miter installed.
The next is the dust box underneath the table and the dust control. I still need to make a guard for the router bit to keep my hands out of trouble.
Any suggestions or critics are welcome. Thanks for looking. Rand
