After moving to a new shop with plenty of room, I finally decided to build a router table. Nothing fancy, just a laminated top with 2x lumber for the base. I did at least mortise and tenon the base together. Glue up and laminating was a bit of a hassle, it was the middle of the winter and significantly too cold in the shop for such activities. Thankfully, the wife was gone for an evening so I was able to sneak inside to get everything put together. Note to self, find a heating source for the shop before next winter!

I really like the large table surface and the open design! You got me thinking that this would be a good idea in my small 2 car garage because your table could double as a light duty work table by putting a plywood cover over the table when it’s not in use. Also a large drawer could easily be added for storage.
Nice job on this and thank you for sharing!

Nice table. You’re going to love the real estate that table provides.

Very nicely done. Maybe use as an out-feed table also?
