Router Table

This is a third generation design. Starting with Jane’s Router Table Project:
http://www.gtcreations.com/routertable/index.html

Then morphed to Scott Moore’s router table.
http://www.scottmoore.net/projects/router/index.html

I modified the plan a bit, mostly making the drawers wider and the router cavity smaller. It’s almost entirely made from poplar. The edge banding is red oak and the sheet siding is 1/4” pine plywood. The miter tracks and other metal parts including the fences were purchased from Router Table Depot. Knobs are brushed nickel and were left over from some other project.

Note: When originally posted I could not find the source. Since then I found it and updated with links.

That is a nice router table. Great design with lots of storage.

This appears to be Norm Abrahm’s design – not quite as wide though – well done!

@Dusty56 – The angle is also from RTD. I don’t remember the size – maybe “large”? It’s about 4” on a side and 36 inches long.
