I made this router fence, maybe five or six years ago. After building my work bench around some lumber that was recycled when I tore down my old shop and moved the single wide off the lot to build our house. All of the benches I have in my shop are repurposed. The table top is centered around a piece of particle board that was laminated with maple on the two faces. I was part of a shipping pallet that tropical hard wood was imported on.
Well, I wouldn’t normally post this project because it isn’t exceptional, it doesn’t really have anything that hasn’t been shown before, as far as router fences go.
I was asked to post it on one of my blogs, and rather than post it in the comments there, I figured I would put it in my projects.
The fence is made from off cuts from a molding mill, that is now shut down. (Don’t you hate it when you lose a source of free stuff?) The wood is all red oak. The adjustable fence pieces are held in place with quarter twenty screws and brass threaded inserts. The clamp that tightens it is a Bessy that was designed to clamp onto the K body clamps.
I appreciate your feedback, good, bad or otherwise.
I must also add that joining this site is one of the best woodworking decisions that I have made. I hope this site remains inspirational and informative.
