Horizontal router table

I saw this portable Hoz. R/T that Serge made. He graciously provided more detailed pics and measurements so I could “reverse engineer” his table. Table top is 16×18 and the fence is 8×23. Router is a DeWALT 6182 plunge. Now I have to find an “experimental” raised panel kitchen cabinet door to make. And get a router bit to do the job.
UPDATE: Added a miter to the table. NOTE: The tape on the face of the fence is to retain the mounting screws for the router while it is not mounted. I may rig something to serve as dust collection port later on in addition to the port in the router.

Well, looks like I’m back in the shop making one of these puppies. Thanks for the post. Awesomely simple and that’s what we’re looking for.

what a great simple design, that is what is needed. Complicated design and demands on high skill levels, wont motivate many members to try out the projects shared on this forum. Simple, down to earth design, which can be replicated by an average DIY woodworker, is need of the hour. Thanks for sharing.

UPDATE: I hope I posted two new pics showing the addition of a miter w/adjustable fence on my horizontal router table. Again, many thanks to Serge (Atelierdubricoleur) for providing his expertice.

Thanks to all the LJs who made such pleasant remarks. It is indeed a simple, but effective tool.

Hey Don, you did it right, congrats! Now wait until you try it with a raised panel bit. It works great. If you want a cheap one, try this site (and keep the link for future uses – awesome deals).

Keep me posted with your feelings!
