When my wife and I bought this house, a junk gas BBQ was left in the garden shed. Not knowing how exactly to dispose of it, I put it out on the street with a “FREE” sign on it. Well, like me, no one wanted it. One afternoon while sitting on the front porch drinking my coffee and looking at the BBQ sitting there on the street, I got this flash.
I had been wanting to build a router table and I just saw it sitting there! Amazing, in my brain!
The first photo is of the front of the BBQ which is now the back.
The second photo is of the back which is now the front. You can see the router hanging there.
The third photo is of the most recent incarnation. New top, new fence and new Bosch router! Still the old, junk BBQ.
I installed a switched outlet into which I can plug the router and the vacuum and turn them both on with a single switch.
The BBQ frame with wheels allows me to roll it anywhere I need it.
I used the old router table top to build a horizontal router on the end of my ShopSmith, which is another story.
