After I bought a table saw I thought it would be a good idea to take a class in woodworking since I haven’t done any real woodworking since high school ( Safety 1st ) . So I needed a project and what better project than another tool. After looking on the Internet I found this one at Plans now (http://plansnow.com/ultrouttabl.html ).
At the time I liked the fact that it was portable and the base could be used for other tool like a thickness planer. The top is made of 3/4” maple the same as the cabinets with two pieces of 1/4” MDF and two pieces of formica from a big box store , it had a chip in the corner so they gave me 40% off , that’s why it’s not white. The two cabinets are made of shop grade maple. I also made the fence. With some help from a friend we wired the power cord and switch. I finished it with three coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal Oil & Urethane Topcoat. I have a Porter-Cable 2-1/4 HP Router to put in the table. Thank you for looking I had fun building this project and Please feel free to leave comments or ask questions.
