I believe my next project will be a router table. Since I really can’t spend any more money right now, I plan to use materials that I already have, including my Rockler lift kit and PC router. It seems to work just fine for me.
I think I want to do the Abrams-style table, probably using the design from Crestonwood.
My biggest complaint with my existing table is with the fence slipping mid-cut. I’ll be careful to incorporate better lock downs.
My second complaint is not being able to quickly micro-adjust it. I’d love to be able to nudge it – better yet dial it after a test cut, or while aligning it. As opposed to loosening up the knob on one end and trying to gentle nudge it and often going too far.
Third – I’m really thinking of not implementing DC under the table. I just don’t think it’s worth it. Here's a guy taking the same stance. The video’s a bit winded. ;)
I think the Abrams fence looks adequate, but it’s still early to make that decision.
I’d love to hear any feedback on this! Thanks all!
