This router table was started with the intent of using recycled lumber from and old piano. The top was gotten at the local lumber yard and cut to size. the top is 24” x 32” and trimmed in local cherry, as is the front. The slides on the top are from Rockler. I made the t-nuts and had the handles in the shop. The fence is chestnut . The drawer fronts and doors are pine and chestnut from piano. The frame is recycled scrap 2×4’s that was around the shop. The sides and back are all local pine we cut down about 6 years ago. The unit is 34” from floor with locking casters. the side drawers are 6”x 6” and the small bottom doors are 6”x 10”. The bottom center drawer is 10” x 12”. The center lexan door is 1/2” x 12” x 14”, which was salvaged from a project I was doing at work. The handles are composites, the knobs came off and old cabinet I got at an auction. The handle on the Lexan door came off a molding machine I scrapped at work. The router lift is a Jessum which the kids got me for my birthday. The router is a 3HP Dewalt with both 1/4” and 1/2”. I have been using the unit and works great. The only thing I have to do is put the Lexan door on when I get self closing hinges and finish the prints. At lot of work but well worth the effort.
