I have been in need of a router table lately and have limited space in my tiny shop so I decided to build an extension to my table saw. I built the frame out of some scrap white oak, a piece of MDF that was laying around and I found some matte finish Formica at my local Habitat for Humanity for $1. Now this was a project I could actually afford! I will be starting on the fence sometime this week. I will eventually add a router plate, when I find just the right one at the right price, until then I will deal with the router being mounted direct. I also plan to add some other upgrades as I need them or as time allows.
