This is first picture of any project. It is birch half inch plywood the trim and drawer fronts I think is yellow pine from a bleacher wood. I coached at a high school and purchased the bleachers when they decided to replace them with plastic. I had a ton of pine 9 inches wide and 16 feet long so I pluged the holes planed it and lined my shop walls with it. You can see some of it on the walls behind the table. I also got have a bunch or real nice 5 quarter 2×10 pretty much knot free. The biggest pain was the dried bubble gum!!

What did you make the top out of? Is that just a countertop?

Gshepherd – The router base can be purchased from INCRA.

Adam Baird – The top can be purchased from INCRA as well. This router is a combo kit, besides the beautiful cabinet system!!!!

I love the design, great looking router!! I have to agree with Stevel’s comment, It could double as a kitchen island.

This looks similar to my design, and it was also my first project last year

GREAT project!!!

Very nicely designed & built Router Table. Great job!
Would be very grateful if you have time to tell us more about that Incra Router Fence system (especially on the positioner and the carriage)
Thanks for sharing.
