Well, here it is. After fooling around with the Ryobi OEM router accessory fence for my BT3100, I decided the add on extension wing / router table, deserved a proper fence. Now mind you, I could have trimmed the corners, or made it prettier, but this is all function. The T track is from Rockler as are the T bolts, My intention was to use star knobs on the adjusters for the faces, but I was an idiot and mis-measured things, and came up 1/4” shy of where I was supposed to be… So 5/16” nuts it is! Other than that bit of stupidity, which I guess I could fix at a later point, I am very happy with the result
The construction is 3/4” scrap SYP decking grade ply, 3/16” tempered hardboard, screws and a tiny bit of glue.
I might have gone a bit overboard on the dust port, but I figure I have a 4” port, why not use it? I originally got the port for my band saw, and opted for a different approach there, so it has been in my shop just, ahem… collecting dust. (oh boy, how ironic is that?)
The table itself needs a second piece of Rockler miter track. I sort of ran short on that!
Once that gets done, and a delamination problem gets solved, I am ready to start building some raised panel doors for the kitchen renovation project that has been put off for far too long!
In all honesty, I am probably going to end up building some shop cabinets fitted with some nice raised panel doors just to get some practice in first, THEN I can work on the kitchen…
