Thought I’d post my progress. This is based on Norm’s table with Crestonwood’s plans.

To be honest, it was a lot more work than I thought it would be.

Looks great. :-)
Definitely a very nice design.

I really like this design and I almost built one just like it but I wanted a larger table and I felt that I could use the available space more prudently. I did not need a toe kick since I placed mine on lockable casters.

And yes, they are always more work than one initially suspects.

Thanks for sharing some photos of your progress. I think you will enjoy it immensely if you did not have a table before.

Cheers!

Maybe you should take some photos and post it in your “Projects” file for us. I think many of us would like to see it.

Looks really good. I just downloaded the Crestonwood’s plans. I had not heard of him before. I had been looking for CLEAR plans for a router table and now I have some. Thanks for sharing.

What are you going to use for a lift for the router?
