After getting into more advanced projects it was time to get a router table but, I did not quite have the space in my shop so I had improvise. I did not have very good wings on my Delta table saw so I decided to replace the wings with better ones and add a router insert so I could have that router table without loosing floor space. This project turned out better than I expected. The hardest part of the project was getting my new wings exactly flush with the table saw. I used 3/4 inch birch plywood for the top which I then laminated to create a smooth surface. I also supported the table top on all four sides and two extra supports underneath for support with 1×4’s. The table top is very sturdy and level. I bought a router insert from rockler to hold my porter cable router. The insert was pretty easy to install and works great. As far as the fence goes, I am going to use my table saw fence as the base and add onto it to make a nice router fence. (next project) This was a pretty cool project that I am happy to have done so I can use my router to its full capabilities.
