My router table

Norm Abrahm’s design with some ideas borrowed from Bill Hylton’s books plus some modifications of my own so that the thing fits me. Cabinet-grade birch ply with oak facings. The top is a lamination of two 3/4” MDF with Formica on both faces and oak 3/4” edging.

It was a fun project and is already proving to be incredibly useful.

Great table, that is my next project, I like yours alot.

The drawers for the router bits, looks like they don’t use hardware, but are 3/4” ply with some strips on the inside of the cabinets to form dado’s?

How do you like that fence clamping system? I was thinking t-tracks but that seems easier and cheaper. Does it hold pretty good?

What’s the size of the top? Table’s height and your height?

Sorry for all the Q’s, just some that I am still wondering about for my table.

I vote for a blog that goes into more detail about what you included here, and how you built it.

A fine router table, and one that I would be interested in reading more about!
