This is just a quick router table I made over the last couple of days. I only have a few hours in it. It began because I have some doors to build for some bookcases. After ordering the Freud door set I liked I sat back and waited for it to arrive. Once it got here it didn’t take very long to figure out that the panel bit was to big to fit in the cut out of the cast iron extension on my table saw.
I looked around my shop for a quick fix and noticed the crappy table I had my bench top jointer setting on. I had 1/2 plywood as a top to hold the jointer. Now this wouldn’t do for a router table. Once again I look around the shop and notice a drop from the pre-finished plywood I am using for bookcase bases. I split this in half and screwed it together. It came out really flat and the finish is really slick. This is only a temporary table top. I should have a piece of plywood left over that I can make a bigger table out of but I didn’t want to cut into a new sheet until the job is finished. The fence I took a little more care with, It will probably find a home on the next table.
This is my version of a quick easy router table. Maybe 2-3 hours in it and most of that is scratching my head trying to figure out how I wanted to do it. Once I get this bookcase job done, I plan to revisit this project and make something a bit nicer that will last me a few years.
She’s not much to look at but she will get me through this job.
Thanks for taking a look.
