After moving into this small 2 car garage, I soon realized that I had to replace my extra large Router Table. Well, I finally made a new one (after 3 years) and got rid of my old one. I also wanted to try this top on hinges that I’ve seen a few of you have. Now I can setup all my PC 690’s with different bits and not have to lose my fence setup. Thanks for those that have contributed without even knowing it. All I have left is to make a dust shroud for the back of the fence, as soon as I figure out which size hose I going to go with.

Very nice. I always thought I wanted my router table as a wing off my table saw but now I’m having second thoughts.

Love the hinge.

Good job.

Thanks Bo & Jim. I like Grey alot so I try and paint everything grey. Bo, I tried the router in the tablesaw wing but it interfered with making cuts mid project to much. I use it for my PC Ocilating Spindle Sander now.

Looks very sturdy. I like the grey, looks like a Delta.

This router table is very nice and should do a whale of a job for you. Congratulations on a great addition to your shop.

John, first time seeing your new router table, as all above says, Great Job. I like the gray also, love the hinged top, hell, love the whole job. You will enjoy that for a long, long time. Congrads.
