Here’s my version of Norm’s router table. Its not the best I’ve seen on here, but I think it will get the job done. The biggest challenge was routing out the top for the plate insert. I spent several hours screwing around with bushings and stuff, only to eventually have the light come on that reminded me that I have the old router top (Rockler), which I can just use to make a perfect template. DUH!
I made it of birch ply and purpleheart. My brother and father run Bell Forest Products (bellforestproducts.com)...their warehouse is in the same building as my office, so I have easy, and usually free, access to exotics.
Instead of drilling holes in the door, I opted to just make a undersized panel.
