I complained a few weeks ago that I didn’t have a router table, so I made one, albeit a crude one. I wanted to see if I will use a router table before I build a more tricked out version. The plans for this bench top model are from Wood Magazine, May 2012, Volume 211. The dimensions of the top are 17 1/2” x 25”. I slightly modified the plans to have the overall width of the base to be 24”, equal to the width of my workbench so I can clamp it to the bench without much fuss. I have an old Craftsman 1HP router with a straight cutter with bottom bearing in it now. I plan to add the drawers and a fence in the next couple of days.
