I made this adjustable router table a few years ago and still use it on occasion. It will go from 0 to 90 degrees and anywhere in between. It opens up a new area for routing but I mostly used it for routing splines into odd shaped cabinet boxes. I also used it to make columns with. There is an example of a column I made in the pictures. I splined together 8 sides and routed a flute in the piece before I put them together. It’s actually quite simple and works pretty good.

Here is a sample video of how it works and on how I join together an 8 sided column.

Great design. Clever concept. Count me in for a set of the plans when ready. Will be missing for next 3 weeks, holidaying with family and friends.

Dutch, I worked on it in my head for about a week. Then drew some rough scetches and some mock ups before I actually started building it.

This is a great idea! I’ve been looking at a lot of router tables to decide what I should build and yours jumps to the top of the list. Thanks for sharing.
