just finished buliding my benchtop router table, its from an issue of wood magazine, number 4 i think, so goes back a bit.
i built a table before which went on my workmate, it was ok, but was a bit to large and awkward, i had to keep dragging it out from under my workspace to use it.
i liked the idea of a benchtop version, and liked this one i made.
the top , legs and feet are from a fileing cabinet that i was given and the fence is made from pine.
works very well, open to ideas for improvements.
hope you like it.
the last pic is a router bit cabinet i built from a copy of woodsmith magazine.
the sides are chipboard and the rail and stile door made in pine.
i got fed up mislaying bits all over the place, now they are just in one place where i can get at them easily. sorry if the pics not too great, taking on my useless mobile.
thanks for looking.
