well I decieded it was time for a new router table, after seeing a few this is the version I came up with, most of it was free stuff, damaged board and such from my job, I had to buy the router and the miter track and the router plate, eveything else was stuff I had laying around.
the fence was a biesmeyer display unit, it is short so I added on to it and modified it a little to hopefully do a good job.
The table has to tilt, I did this on my last one and love this feature, Im so use to it, to change would be a pain.
the top four drawers are built on wooden sliding dovetails, never tried this before, It was fun and so far works well.
the bottom three are on full extion slides, the bottom one on sidemount soft close, I said I used what I had laying around.
I built the carcass mostly out of 18mm china birch, had to work around delams but Is is good. was gonna finish the birch and built raise panel fronts but a salesman dropped off a new kind of contact cement for customers to try, well I brought the tank home last week end, It looks like a propane tank, I think they call it a 38 lb, the you run about 55 lb of air to the tank and a regular fluid hose and gun. truthfully the best glue Ive ever used so thats why it laminated and yes I had the laminate from a project from a few years ago
I dont have a vac system, lol, I do have two shop vac, Ill make them work for a while, It was a fun project

That is seriously awesome, one of the coolest designs for a router table i’ve seen yet. The way you did the fence is great

Awesome. That’s what I like to see on a router fence. Table saw T style.

That’s a real beauty. Besides having great functionality, I love the design from an aesthetic point of view.

This is the nicest router table I have ever seen. Why don’t manufacturers make hinged tops on their table?
I hate crawling under the table to raise, lower, or to change bits.
Really nice.
