Carry-all Router Table Fence

I want to share with you the router table fence I came up with after years of experience with router tables.

The fence has all major features required to be efficient when using this tool:

- Straight forward to build
- Split fence
- Standard 2-1/2” vaccum port
- Safety guard
- Handles to carry around
- On board storage compartments
- High fence to accept vertical featherboards
- Since it’s made out of MDF, it’s very stable.

Since my router table is behind the outfeed table of the tablesaw, moving the router table fence with all the accessories to rip longer stock is easy and fast when needed. By the way, all joints are dadoed, glued and screwed.

Yet another MDF wonder! Very nice, as usual.

I’m curious about the two boards labeled A and B in this picture. What are they? I will guess that B is just a handle to help lift the fence. But what is A?

Hey guys. Thank you all for your kind words.

@rmac: You’re right, the B represents simple handles to carry the fence around. Simple enough? The A stands for what I call “Router Bit Life Saver”. Check it out at or directly on this page of my blog.

Thanks Serge
You posted this just in time for my router fence build Which is going on my t/s extension/downdraft table.
This looks like a good fence design and I hope I can adapt it to my setup.
