That’s a really nice top. If I had a top like that on mine I would be so constantly fearful of scratching it that I wouldn’t enjoy using it.

I’m with Roger, Id be afraid of scratching it, but also torn because everyday I didn’t use it I’d feel bad about the amount of work that must have taken, I would end up routing scraps just because! Nice work Tim

That’s awesome! Gave me an idea to make the Dining room into part of the woodshop. Put the router table in there.. hmm…

It’s really a beautiful table. Good job man!

Beautiful top! Is that homemade or part of a bowling alley?

When I was in college, and didn’t have any place to store it, I was offered a bowling alley from foul line to just behind the pins. It weighed about 3000 lbs and was over 60 feet long and almost 4’ wide.

The top is made out of ash. I cut a groove on opposite sides of each 1 1/2” board and ripped some 1/4” plywood the hole length and glued it up like a biskit. Took it to a local woodshop and had them run it thru their wide belt sander. Cut out for the lift and finished her up. I have used it for oak raised panels and just about everything else and am very happy with it. I also made a workbench with the same build for the top.

Nice table.Having a router table in your woodworking shop adds a new dimension. Your skills will become noticably better if you decide to add one. It provides a stable platform to do intricate shaping, as well as precise edging.
