So with space being tite I made a router table that could be taken down when not in use.
It has dowel pins in rear that mate up with holes in work bench along with the fold down supports.
Also uses a couple of threaded hand knobs from bottom to hold in place. For now using an old Hitachi 3 hp router w/ soft start, By the way I bought the “Router raiser” and installed it for raising and lowering from the top, Works great.

That’s a great looking table in a great looking shop.

I knew, there were going to be nice projects coming out of your shop. I took a look at your cypress bench, and it looks great. Can’t wait to see more!

Again, Welcome to LJs, a nice little slice of insanity!

That’s a really good idea! I have a router table upstairs in the cold garage, but I would like to also have one in my basement, where space is at a premium.

Jeff welcome to LumberJocks that is a good looking solution for a tight space. Great looking shop you have, I like the sheet goods rack. Need to build something similar in my garage so I can get out of DWs car without hitting plywood.
Look forward to seeing more.

Even if space isn’t tight, it is nice to be able to knock down and put away items that are not always in use. Great shop project…..................

I like the table a lot because I probably won’t be using a router that much. I’m in the process of selling a router table on a metal leg stand (takes up too much space ;-). Question for you…what is it and where did you get the base plate? My issue is if I sell the table I got then what trouble will I go through to get the right materials to build what you’ve got.
Thanks…welcome to LJ…I recently found it too and it is awesome!

Richard
how are you doing?
The plate im using is made by “Rousseau” its a generic base made to work with most routers.
Most all of the wood stores sell thier version of the part. you could even make your own out of heavy plexi glass.
The rest is just building a table around it to suit your needs.

Be safe
