Karl and I just got our tilting router lift built and installed in the router table. It is mounted to the right of the table saw in a removable 1 1/4” thick 24×24” melamine top.

Karl supplied the plans (purchased from and I supplied materials.

Matthias did a wonderful job of designing a solid yet extremely flexible router lift. My back thanks you Matthias, no more bit replacement while bent over reaching underneath a table.

Now I can start closing in this workstation.

I am planning to build one too. I have some questions of both a1jim and luv2learn (or others) .
  1. How much did all the parts cost you (if you had to buy them all)?
  2. How long did it take to build?
  3. How important is it to have it tilt? Mathias has a non-tilting version too.
  4. Does tilting make good dust collection difficult?
