There are many ways to improvise a router table. This is mine. Simple, cheap and it works. It also requires minimal space. Mdf for the top and solid wood for the base.
The height is adjusted with supplements on the bottom. The safety switch (double button) is mocked by a tape, and the machine is plugged into an external key device.
Make box joint is easy and effective. The image is a test, 6mm (1/4’‘) straight bit.
The general idea is taken from this page:

Hay muchas maneras de improvisar una fresadora de mesa. Esta es la mía. Simple, barata y funciona. Además ocupa poco espacio. Mdf para la mesa y madera maciza para la base.
La altura se regula con suplementos en la parte inferior. El interruptor de seguridad (doble botón) es burlado con una cinta, y la máquina se enchufa a un dispositivo con llave externa.
El malletado para cajas es sencillo y sale perfecto. En la imagen se va una prueba, con fresa recta de 6mm.
La idea general está tomada de esta página:

Buenos noches , amigo! That is a nice job on that router table. I had one similar to yours and for a fence I used a wide and tall piece of oak that pivoted from one end and just clamped on the other.
I like the sliding gauge with the indexing key Great idea. You have adapted that plunge router in there very nicely!!..................Jim

This is the idea I needed. Have been hesitating too long to get my router table set up. Now I realize I don’t need a
router table per se.
Muchos gracias!

I love the switch! If you take out the collet you can use that masking tape to hold in the bit too!

Sorry, couldn’t help myself… Nice job!

It works. I’n sure the noise level is far lower than an aluminum table. Nice work!
