I built this mini router table with micro height adjustment.
The table and the slide are from cutting boards.

I bought the plung base for mine years back and use it to smooth to the line for patterns. I think your table is a better idea. You’ve done a fantastice job of engineering that.

Ingenuity at it’s finest! I’ve often thought about how handy something like this would be. Congratulations on getting past the idea stage and following through.

I am also in the middle of making that jig it’s an awsome idea they had too bad there always trying to soak people on that site, they reel you in and then they send you to there web site to buy the plans. Yours is much better than theirs I like the way you added the height ajustment bolt. Good Luck with it.
