here’s a router table that i can take down when I’m not using it.i may put it on the end of the table later with some hinges so it could fold down.this was made mostly with lumber that was being threw away but it works good i use the two cabinet doors for the legs and clamp the under side with clamps to the table its seems to be solid.i got the plans from Fine WoodWorking it was called stow and go router table. its a free video of it on there net site . i made some changes to fit my needs but its basically the same its 48×24 and put the router offset to have a longer out feed there is a bolt and nut on the far end of the fence that’s the pivot point and use a clamp on the other end of the fence to secure it in place when a change of the size of route is made . i put the triton router in the table so the adjustments could be made on the top side .too old to be bending down very this router you can raise it all the way up and it locks to where you can change the bit with one the plate from Rockler. the vacuum box dose a great job too I’m still learning how to use it thou. and going to get some feather boards for sure and do a little bit more studying on router table usage.just wanted to contribute something to the site you guys have been so helpful to us green horns thanks.

Good job , eddie…..I don’t know what you’re using for door hinges and how they’re attached , but that would be my only concern : )

Looks good. Love your choice of routers. I’ve got an original model without the above the table crank.

Great concept, takedown or portable works for my small garage/shop too.
thanks for the idea!

Hahahaha…i have the same exact setup with the fence (wingnut, bolt, and washer); I’ve had it for seven years now and it still serves its purpose. Your’s does look much nicer than mine though!

Nice job on getting it done. Looks like it will do its task. Mine is about 95% complete. I’ll post when I finish it. Will that day ever come? LOL!
