So I’m building Norms Router Station…

Almost don’t just need to complete the top and the dust collection on the back side.

Here is a link to Pat Warner’s video on FWW. You may have to sign up for their 14 free trial to see it, but you may not:
HE uses 5/8” cabinet grade mdf, heavily cross-braced and coated with Watco oil. If you join or are already a member do a search for his name and look at some of the things he suggests.

I have safety issues with the technique that is demonstrated in the video John has linked to.
1. removing the spacers with the cutter spinning is asking for trouble
2. being able to use feather boards with a router adds safety and accuracy, using the spacers doesn’t allow the use of feather boards (unless you reset the feather board every time you remove a spacer, which would be crazy)
