Thanks to all the suggestions on LJ, I made quick work of this base this morning. Nothing fancy, but it’s square, level, sturdy and exactly what I had in mind.
I had purchased a second hand router table a few weeks ago, but after trying to put casters on it, realized the base was too flimsy.
So I removed the table top and built this base out of 2×4s.
I cut the legs to 33”. With the table top and casters, the height is a bit higher than standard 36”, but it’s perfect for my height. Each of the casters are locking but I was more concerned about being able to easily move the table.
I attached the table top to the base with some brackets I had leftover from my 2×4 shelves.
The only purchase I had to make was 4 8ft 2×4 studs. The shelf on the bottom was made with the remnants of a piece of garbage shelving unit I wasted money on before I started spending time in the garage.
-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.
