I agree completely. I can see that you enjoyed “playing” with the router.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your comments
I will not tell a lie. I did this with my Bosch now Shop Fox overarm router. You can do this with an inverted router. If my memory serves me right decades ago Woodsmith Magazine showed how to build a router table. In that or a later issue they showed you how to build and attach an arm to create an inverted router. Shopsmith has an overarm pin router and if I recall correctly it can be attached to something other than the Mark?.
Todays small DIY CNC routers may be better as my old system requires creating a fixture. Since I do only one-offs the fixture body goes in the trash at the end. Right now I am building a small CNC as an alternative to my Bosch overarm and Delta inverted router.
The safer unit to use is an inverted router since the tooling is under the template or go with a DIY CNC.
