Extension Wing Router Table

When I purchased my table saw in April 2010, I cut a hole in the extension wing and dropped my router lift in. It worked, but it had problems. It was intended to be a temporary fix until I could build the one I really wanted.

This is a torsion box design with two 1/2” MDF skins and a 1” tall by 5/8” thick grid work in between. The top is replaceable and is screwed on from underneath, before the bottom MDF skin is in place. This version is very flat, I had made one for my old table saw and it was also flat and stayed that way. I added a few details to this one, like the solid wood trim, a switch (which is handy), and a dust collection box underneath, which gathers about 95% of what the router dishes out when combined with the fence dust collection.

Thanks for looking.

Steven

nice and simple design. I was looking forward to make a table for my router. I just finished making my workbench (posted yesterday on this site) and now, wish to make a router table. Your project gives a refreshing thoughts while finalizing design of my own table.

everything is fine.
Only at the bottom of the box in which the router is better to make a cone.
I redid the bottom of the direct and satisfied.

BAKTHAVATHSAL KADAMBI: Congratulations on your workbench, looks good. Good luck with your router table, I look forward to seeing it when complete.

Vii: The lift is a Woodpeckers PRL-V, purchased summer 2009. I think they have newer versions out now.
