Outstanding job. Looks neat and very functional. I’m sure you will be using it for years to come.

I have the table top part but need to make cabinet around it. This looks great. Mine should look similar.

Excellent! Did the hardware kit (if you used it) have all the items shown in your version?

If I remember correctly, the T-track in the top fence section and in the table top (both along the miter gauge slot and the two fence mounting slots) were not part of the kit (Rockler part # 63010).

Nice attention to detail. I love the pattern of the grain on the side panels. I have to assume you did that deliberately

Very Nice job on the Router Table…

The holes in the plastic piece for the vacuum didn’t line up with the holes that I drilled in the fence???
I checked my measurements and there correct, I think the hardware kit is a waste of money.
Nobody ever said anything about it so I figured I got a reject…
I did my homework on the hardware kit and came up with the kit was the best way to go but after I started assembly I found out different. I want to get the dual track like you got but the single track came with the kit.
You can’t buy feather boards like t-track 1/4 – 5/16…

Really nice table. Solves the question of where to put everything.

Nice job. Looks too nice to cover in sawdust.

Very nicely done. I’m building the same RT, just have to finish the details…turn knobs, sand, finish.

What did you coat the fence with poly or shellac?
