I’m a newbie here, and a girl with light experience, and I just wanted to get some guys opinions on the positioning of my router table on the work bench I have made
I followed a sketch up design for the basic layout of it. I found this on Google. I have searched all over the Internet and Pinterest for ideas as well as safety precautions. I am pretty happy with everything so far but what I would like to know is there a reason that table saws are at one end facing you (this is how mine is set up as well) then the router table is at the other end also facing you when you stand at that end.
Seems to me that it would be more benificial for me to use the table area as I push my wood through the router. I realize that using some joints I would have to run it through twice but reaching the table is not a issue.
I have attached a photo so it can help you see what I mean.
