I have not been CLing like I normally do since my wife and I bought our new house in January. Trying to get it all set up for her and then I will take time for myself to set up my shop which is a 20’x18’ addition that is built on the back of the 2 car garage. So yesterday I was drawn to check CL for some reason and this router table was added just 10 minutes before I logged on. As some of you know, these Canadian made router tables are built like tanks out of maple and walnut. I have never seen one on CL so I had to email the seller and see if I could go look at it. So after a 25 minute drive and $200 this beauty is now in my garage and I am happy, happy, happy!!

So, what router lift and router are you going to stuff into it?

That is a good router table,very popular around here.I would consider buying one if I had the space ,for now I have 2 benchtop type that get put away out of sight after use.
Just to give you an idea how well you have done with your purchase,here’s a seller who has a lower model and wants $275 for it,it’s nowhere as refined as yours:

I have a big Triton that I have been holding for a while trying to decide what to use it with. I guess I just answered my own question.

Woodpecker’s makes an aluminium router plate drilled for that router, including the above table access port.

Or, if you really want to splurge with all that money you saved on the table, the PRL V2 is awesome router lift.

That Triton should do a great job. Highly touted in the router forum.

I built one of those this past summer.

Materials alone cost almost $500.

timbertailor, thanks for the heads up about the Woodpeckers router plate. I stopped at the local Woodcraft lsat night after work and picked one up. The guy working even gave me 10% off which is what they are offering on items this weekend for a sale. I am not going to be around this weekend so he gave it to me early. Now to get time after work tonight to put it on the router and mount it in the table.
