Some of you have followed the build here (sorry they are mixed in with other blog entries….should have made a separate blog)

First I would like to say that I’m not independently wealthy, I aquired the extruded aluminum very cheap, so that the only reason for using this cool material.

Features:

Incra Ultra 24” Positioner with Wonderfence
Woodpeckers 27” x 43” table top
Woodpeckers PRL V2 lift
PC 7319 Router
Flip down tool storage using rare earth magnets
Incra template storage on slide out shelf
Maple bit and storage trays
A thin strip of Cocobolo between the doors, wooden bling….
Dust collection above and below table with separate blast gates
Industrial grade castors with rubber feet that screw down

Not shown, the upside down 5 gallon bucket that I sat on pondering how to build this….....

Thanks for looking.

Jeff

Jeff, you need a patent on that design. That is about the best design for Router Table I have seen since Norm’s. Wonderful work. Nice job.

Wow! Awesome look. It looks like coming out of space. I wonder if there is a woodworker out there on the Internaltion Space Lab!

Hat’s off for this unique design.

Question: Can I borrow your 1/2’’ carbide spiral bit? ;-D

Best,

Serge

This is the standard by which all other router tables will be measured.

Simple Terrific Jeff. Looks so clean , tidy, rigid,, with high tech design.

Frankly, I have already postponed the construction of my wooden RT for now.

It also happen to remind an air hostess by the side offering some cold drinks!!.

Take care now

Thanks for all the great comments!

A note about the design process…....I really didn’t have a design to start with, except for the basics, it had to fit the table top, have a dust box, and wanted the setup tools close at hand.

I built the basic stand from a rough pencil sketch and it sat for several weeks while I pondered the next step, hence the bucket. I wanted the tool storage on the right side of the dust box, and I think the idea hit me at work one day – the flip down door concept. I built it the next day.

I like the challenge of working with the space at hand and finding the best way to maximize the potential.
