My first router table was a benchtop model. Then I moved up to a table saw extension wing router table. At 6’5” I just could seem to get it at the right height to allow me to get some work done without killing my back. I decided to take matters into my own hands. I modified a couple different ideas I found here on Lumberjocks and elsewhere online and here is what I came up with. Rockler was also offering 20% off one item which allowed me to purchase their router table/fence/lift combo at a decent price. The table top sits right at 43 inches which is a comfortable height for me to work at. This also allowed me to have plenty of additional storage. Dust is collected both at the fence and the back of the cabinet.
