Compared to most things on this site, this projects is rather weak sauce. However it is a step in the right direction for my work space. Dealing with half a garage that I need to be able clear out when finished I decided to make a rolling cart that can pull double duty. The work top is held by several wing nuts and can be removed quickly and swapped out with my new Woodpecker table and router plate. After feeling a tad bit guilty about purchasing a new Triton router(with the kick ass built in lift,) I decided to just build the fence. I used a $1 MDF short and a couple of knobs, bolts , and screws to make a super easy/cheap router fence. Any suggestions as to what I could add to it? Thanks for viewing! ~ JJ

Well done!
I’m building a stand similar to the first pic for work pieces since my table saw surface is so small (bosch 4100).
