This is one of those projects that started out as “ya know it would be soooo awesome if…”

I used John’s plans at to build the lifts. Two 2hp routers @ $39.99 each. And some birch plywood. Dust collection with variable speed on the routers. Never before have I used a woodworking tool that has this good of dust collection.

Check out the full writeup on my website here:

Here are 2 videos. The first is a the table in action. The second is a long boring video of the build. If for some reason the embed code does not play the links are above

Nicely done. I love the lift mechanism. Do you have the previous stage build video of that build?

the build of the router lifts? No. It is a paid plan and when I started editing the video I decided it was too descriptive. I don’t to be responsible for giving away the detail of the product. It is a great lift that you can check out on It was extremely easy to build.

Ken – Your welcome :)
Jap – Thanks!
Marty – Thanks! Because these two routers, the plans, and the materials needed cost less than the 2-1/4 hp Bosh router that I originally planned on getting. Also, i tend to use the same couple router bits over and over again. Having at least one always in a router is a nice convenience.

Now I get it. I saw your rig under construction once before and wondered. It’s a time saver. In a woodshop that can be worth all right. nice work.
