Here’s a folding router table that I made for my son-in-law. The best part is that except for the hardware it
is all made from free material from a local woodshop’s scrap bins.

The core is 3/4 mdf, 5/8 birch ply, 1/8 plastic laminate with maple all around

The winged part will be mounted to the garage wall and the top will fold up when not in use. I’ll post some pics
when he has it set up.

The worst?? Its better than mine…now I have to make another one

Bevy, can’t wait to see it installed so I can get a better idea of the concept. Do you have a link to a plan or finished pic? Pat
