I have been wanting a new router table as my old one was a bench top model which wasn’t very sturdy, I got started by going to my local builders yard and bought construction grade timber (sawn not square edge). I had certain criteria for this Multi-functional table one it must be cheap, 2 it must be sturdy 3 it must be functional and easy to use otherwise I would put off using it. The frame is held together with wood screws, the top is a recycled chip board sheet from a desk, 50mm rubber castors allow the unit to be rolled around. I have a plunge router and still wanting a router lift I designed this very simple router lift just using a old wheel as a handle and a threaded T-nut with matching threaded rod, when the handle is spun the router is pushed up/down. The router is attached to a 9mm birch plywood base it has large screws under it so that it can be leveled. I routed a miter slot that was just the right size for my table saw miter gauge, the fence is taken from Steve from www.Woodworkingformeremoratls.com watch his router table video for how to make it. I like the height of the table and the weight as it is heavy enough not to rock about but also light enough to roll around easily.
