This is my versions of Norm’s router table. It is made from Oak plywood for the cabinet and solid oak for the trim, drawer fronts and top. I bought a Freud table/router kit and used the router, plate and fence for this project. I still have to finish the dust collection, but since I don’t have a dust collector yet, it can wait.

Nice work! I always wanted to build that project, but unfortunately I just don’t have the space for something that large.

Anyone else miss Norm?

An Oak Router Table! I’ll bet that’s stable enough to run anything through it. Nice Wood Work as well.

I have the same freud fence. How did you adapt the back knobs to the t-track? Mine screw down into threaded inserts in the table, which is stupid… I’d love to have the t-track setup like yours. I suppose I could always buy new knobs. Very nice job on the router table :) .
