I built this Router table over a year ago and thought I would post it here to maybe give some inspiration to a few jocks out there. Heck! Lumberjocks gave me the inspiration for my table!
I used some old cabinet door’s for the sides and some laminated MDF for the top. I have the baby Triton Router in the cabinet. I made the fence system using maple with Cherry stops. I put the feather board and the stops on so you could see it all at one time. The fence, stops and feather boards are all adjustable. A larger table would of made it better, guess I could build one someday!

I wonder how maney Lefthanded Lumberjocks are out there?

I only said that because of how I place my “STOP” switch. I wanted to be able to hit that big stop button as fast as I could so I though being left handed it should go on the left side.
