That looks fantastic. The only problem I see is that you didn’t make two… one for you and one for me.

Again, another great project. Nice collection of projects you have here. I like the wine coffin also.

That is a great looking router table. I am almost done with mine as well. That tall fence will be nice. You will be glad you spent the extra time on it, I’m sure.

Very nice! I agree with Blake – that tall fence must be very useful!

Nice looking router table. I build mine about 1 year ago and it changed the way I work (for the better of course). The nicest things are more controlled operation and much easier to control the dust (virtually no dust actually).
Two things you might want to consider changing to your table to make it more useful (not better looking since yours is already too nice) are:
1. Laminate the top. You want a surface on which the wood can slide easily and that you can wax
2. Replace the switch with one specifically designed for tools. Grizzly is selling one for only 4$ (http://grizzly.com/products/Safety-Paddle-Switch/G8988). Your switch is not safe (hard to switch off in a hurry when something bad happens).
Blake, you are making your table now as well. You might want to look into the switch too.

Popular design, I will get around to this one before all is said and done. Well done.

That’s a great table, Mike! I’m sure many beautiful things will come out of your shop with that addition!

Mike that looks exactly like the type I have in mind to make. Did you design this or use plans? Beautiful job.
