I purchased this white piece of melamine from the Home Depot for 2 bucks. It was in the cull lumber section with a HUGE gouge on one side. It was PERFECT for the top of my router table. All of the framing used was also bought in the cull lumber section. The entire thing cost me around 15 bucks for the wood. The fence is alder. I had the t-tracks and knobs from the 1st router table I made. It was small and served it’s purpose. I needed a bigger and better one so… I included a pic of the old router table for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.

That’s a nice sturdy looking router table. Congratulations.

Yes it is. At the Home Depot they have scrap wood and warped wood in the back near the saw. You can find ALL KINDS of treasures. I love the cull bins.

Thanks everyone for your comments.
