A couple weeks ago my neighbor stopped by the shop and asked if I would build a simple router table for his son who needed one to build cedar strip kayaks for his church.As I hadn’t purchased the wood for my next project yet, I jumped at chance.My neighbor bought a Porter-Cable 3 1/2 hp router with a rockler plate from Craigslist for $200.00, so all I needed to do was go online and order parts, channel, T-track, bolts, knobs, well you get the picture. then off I went to the lumber yard , ya like I needed an legitimate reason to go there.a 3/4” ply,3/4” MDF,a sheet of plastic laminate,and I was off. A 24×24 box with a 26×36 top,a simple MDF pullout self with 1/4” and 1/2” holes for the bits , a MDF fence with a adjustable face, and I put a scrolling on the door that I though was a good fit.As the commercial goes the smile on his face was pricless.It was a fun project .All for $ 372.00 including the router,about as simple as it gets.
