Pick from dozens of designs or just do a search on the Internet. Prepare to be overwhelmed.

I own a copy of the classic Norm Abrams Router table. It suits me to the bone! See it here

Dan Phalen at Creston Wood offers plans for his version of Norm’s table FREE. Find them here

Personal suggestion: include room in the budget for a router lift – expensive, I know, but it makes using the router in a table so much nicer!

Hello Matt, since you’ve got a table saw and a new found respect for it, have you considered adding a wing to the saw? Not sure if your shop is at the fire hall or at your home but for me, with limited space, having my routers able to drop into the wing a real space saver, especially since the fence can do double duty

This is better than a link to a router table plan.

Why don’t you just use the router table that is already on your saw?

My table saw is a General 50-200r M1 with router table attached straight off the showroom floor.

I am selling the saw after the last scare. I am in a quandry between the MINIMAX 300 Classic (I think) and the SC4 Elite. I haven’t slept in days. haha

Have your say...
