Hi again:

And now my finished router table, I had to replace the previous one as the plywood table and the mdf fence were a little bit warped.

While I was at it, added a dust port and a micro adjusting screw, also you can see on the first photo the plastic I recycled (from the router plate package) to use it as shims on the left side of the fence when jointing board edges, works great

The table is 1/2” particle board with melamine + 3/4” plywood, frame is tzalam wood

T-tracks, knobs, brass screw and power switch from rocker, router plate from mlcswoodworking

The fence is made from 6 layers of 3/4” plywood 1-1/2” thick, no way this fence will warp!

The fence faces have a 1/4” x 1/4” rabbet in the back, on the side facing the bit, so I can add a zero clearance inserts when needed.

Thanks for looking!

Does the micro adjust on the side like you have it cause the fence to twist from square or not slide freely? I’ve seen several like yours and I’ve always wondered about this. I need to build my own, and had considered a 3rd track near the center of the fence.
Thanks,

Rod

Hi rodneyh, yes, adjusting the screw would cause the fence move from parallel from the table, so it can’t work together with a miter gauge.

And, the screw only works as stop so you can slide the fence freely for adjustments.
