Of course, I didn’t build this till after I was done with my entertainment center. I’ll use it for sure on the next adventure.

Well done.

Really nice. Have you been doing wood working very long? Tell us a little about yourself and share your knowledge.

Great job. Should give you many years of service. I especially like the over-sized power switch. Did you build the fence?

The router table was based on the New Yankee design. Of course I made my own changes. The top came from MLCS Woodworking which includes many more option than Rockler’s. The top has aluminum tracks instead of grooves in the mdf top, and includes, bit guard, dust port, phenolic insert, and free shipping under $190.00 I finished it with Minwax blue water base stain just to see how it looks on red oak. The router is a Bosch and the switch is from Grizzly (many available). This thing works GREAT

Nice looking table. I need one of those paddle OFF switches like yours.

That is a great looking router station. My router is mounted beside my saw, but I keep thinking about making a stand alone one also.
