I finally finished my new Incra Router Table!!!

I consider this the most significant addition to my shop since the table saw. It was fun to build and I can’t wait to use it. This is certainly the biggest single project I have made. I still have not had much time to try it out due to the holidays, etc. I’ll post some updates on this page when I have some time to play with it.

You can see the designing and building process as I blogged it in the series: My New Router Table

The features:

  • Table dimensions: 32” x 44” (42” tall)
  • Table materials: Two layers of 3/4” high quality particle board sandwiched between two layers of laminate.
  • Fence: Incra Wonderfence system with Incra 17” Positioner
  • Router Plate: Incra Magni-Lock Router Plate
  • Router: Bosch 1617EVSPK
  • Cabinet Construction: 1/2” Birch Ply joined with biscuits and trimmed with Solid Beechwood.
  • Integrated Dust Collection: Craftsman 6 gal., 3hp vac housed below in a sound-insulated but vented cabinet supplies suction above and below the bit for quiet and virtually dust free operation.
  • Electrical: One switch simultaneously powers router and dust collector.
  • Drawers: Four drawers with full-length slides for storage of router bits, tools, jigs, etc.
  • Casters: Four swiveling urethane casters, the front two are locking.

A few more detail photos:

Now comes the fun part… filling up those drawers!

-- Happy woodworking!

Very Nice! I see that you’ve got everything you need, even an internal vacuum system. That’s pretty cool.

Man that is a sweet set up you have going there. I really like the thought that must have gone into it. Putting a built in dust extractor is a really good idea. Nice work..

This came out really nice! Doors and drawers look great including the hardware. What are all the metal plates to the left in the bottom drawer? Are those different enserts that seat in the table’s main plate?

Really nice looking Router Table. You will find it invaluable – there is just so much more you can do with this than you can with a hand held router. I look forward to seeing what you use it for.

Very nice job indeed. Looks almost too good to use.
How about sending it to me down under and you can make another one?.

Fantastic, Blake. I’m green with envy over here. I’m with Grumpy….it would be a shame to get dust and chips all over that setup!
