I finally got the shop done and I want to build a router table ASAP so I can use that to build some other things, so I bought the Kreg video on building a router table using the pocket hole system. The video is actually pretty good, but the case states that there is supposed to be a materials list which I can’t find. I thought it would be on the dvd and that I could just print it out, but its either not there or its hiding pretty well. Does anyone out there have this video? If so, can you tell me if the plans were hard copy or if I’m just too stupid to find them on the disc? Thanks!!

I don’t have this DVD on routers, but I’ve got the other ones on cabinet building and making tables by John Sillots. Neither one of these had plans or materials list. They think you’re suppose to know how to build them, I guess. You could call and ask them, but I doubt if they furnish them. If you need plans and drawings, check out The New Yankee Workshop. They have a DVD and cut list and drawings to build Norm’s router table. I built one, works great, and a lot of the LJer’s on here have built it too.

I hope to build Norm’s router table one day, but I wanted to use this for now so I cold get something done in a day. The package clearly states “Cut list and exploded diagrams included”.

Dave: You got me to wondering about my DVD’s, so I looked for cut a cut list and diagram——nothing.

I guess it only comes with the router table DVD. I’d find out what the deal is. There was nothing on the dvds itself, except him building the table and cabinet. Good luck. Let me know if you get it.

Hi Rick,

I will call Kreg tomorrow morning and find out what the deal is and I will let you know. Take care.

i just remembered i have this video….

if you watch it he lists the dimensions for the cabinet before starting. its at about the 3 minute mark of the video. and then as he is cutting pieces he lists the dimensions of each part

Thanks Mike, I’ll give that a try. Of course, I’ll still call Kreg and see what the deal is. I realize that I could probably figure something out and use the overall design for a different size, but the materials list will save me a lot of time figuring out how much plywood I need to buy.

hey dave,

buy lots of plywood, it won’t go bad. also, watch the video and take notes. draw your own plan, look at what you want. it will be good experience and maybe even fun! there is no wrong way. if you don’t like it, put a regular counter top on it and use it as a shop cabinet and build another one. go for the gusto !!
if you have questions during the construction, ask. we can help

Okay, I called Kreg and they sent me an email with a materials list and an exploded diagram within 5 minutes. Great CS.

Russv, I wish I had the ability to buy lots of plywood. HD has a bunch of cabinet grade plywood on sale right now but I have to share the garage with some other stuff of my wife’s. Also, won’t it bend if its stood on end or side?

keep it off the floor lean it straight not cockide, leaning sideways instead of upright is probably better. it will stay straight for a long time. I try to keep one extra sheet (3/4”, 1/2”, 1/4”) on hand and use the rack for large scraps also. you will need storage for scraps at least.

I like to figure my own cut list and dimensions for practice (and fun) sometimes. I tend to not make anything straight from plans. I feel like a copycat. Thats just me. I did build a rolling lumber rack from a woodsmith plans yearts ago. it’s kinda A-frame shaped with cut-off’s on one side and plywood on the other.
