I’m sorry if this is in the wrong forum…..........

If it is, mods please move it to the appropriate one..

I am looking to build my own benchtop router table and would like to see some good plans out there. I would like to have a dust port on it if at all possible

I don’t know about plans but you can do a search in Ljs and should come up with a lot of photos that you can make your own plans for.

I did find one by googleing it.

You might be able to find what you’re looking for by going to “Plans Now”. They have free plans that you can download, and I’ve seen some bench top router tables on there before. Several varities to choose from…

I would check with buddies who get woodworking magazines! There have been some great plans and ideas this summer! Check at Your local library. They should have the woodworking mags. on hand. I have them at My public library, and spend a bit of time reading there.

Do a google search and you will find a lot of plans for router tables. Like mentioned above your local library will have plenty of plans look in the woodworking periodicals and in the woodworking books. I know my library has an extensive collection and if i find a book from another library in my system they will send the book over in a day or two.

Go to my projects to see the simple table I made from MDF. It was quick cheap and easy to put together, and works well for me. I have a cross piece that fits in my workmate bench, just cinch it down and it is locked in. I have a Craftsman router that I picked up at an estate sale for $20, so I have less that $50 in the whole thing.
