Check out the latest shop addition. It took me a while to acquire all the parts for this, but it’s finally done. I bought the freud router about two years ago and it came with the router plate and above the table bit adjustment. Then I came across an old steelcase desk and borrowed the top. It is 1 1/2 thick and dead flat. I installed the freud plate and a incra miter track. Last christmas along came the incra wonder fence and LS positioner. The cabinet is built out of 3/4 plywood. It is a simple yet effective design. The drawers just ride on wood runners. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Nice table intersting design. I take it you slide the fence arm out before lowering the drop down leaf? Nice set up , hard to go wrong with Incra.

You have done a great job putting all this together in one unit.

I have an Incra Ultra Jig someone gave me 1 month ago and after reading the first 2 pages on how to calibrate it, I set it on the floor where it still resides. I am sure it is a great tool but it’s just way over my head right now! LOL

If I can ever get my pool table out of my work shop and down into the basement, I would have the room to build a table like this. Did you build it from plans or your own design? Great job! Love the look. Enjoy!

Wow! That’s a really nice set up, I wish I had the space.

The Incra setup does require both more fixed and ‘grey’ space than the T-square (Kreg) design; however, it is rock solid, dead accurate. and repeatable. Incra systems are expensive, relative to virtually all other systems; but for my money, they Incra perform accordingly.

I’m about 2 days from completing my standalone Incra-based RT. Your’s looks great.
