I wound up with a router table top for christmas and am getting ready to build the base.
I’ll start with sketchup and post its progress as I go.
The router table top is from Woodpecker and it seems nice. Given a good support stand it should be a great addition.
Stage2: Ok, here is my first concept plan. Any thoughts or first impressions?
Design goals: Movable, sag prevention and storage for all my router accessories.
Router house height: Right now, I have chosen 12 inches for the height of the router housing. I’m not sure that will be deep enough. Measuring my plunge attachment for the 690 router, it maxes out at 11”. Not sure I’ll use this router for ever, but I’m sure it won’t be upgraded for many years.
Dust: I’m planning on putting in an acrylic door to cover the Router House and a 4” port out the back to connect to my dust collector. Before attaching the 4 inch line, I’m planning on having a tee for topside dust collection using a dedicated 4-6’ piece of 2” hose.
