This is it my new router table set up. It have a nice fence with adjustable opening and T-track for hold down. I made an taller fence to suport larger pice like raise panel door. You can see all the knobs at the back of the fence to set the fence. I put 2 dust port, one at the bite and one under the table. I’ve been woking on this project for 2 years(not full time) and the only thing that i still got to do is put some finish on it, your comments are more than welcome.

What type of finish should i use???? i need your help.

Looks like a lot of thought went into this. It came out great. Is the dust collector under the table for stuff the first one missed or something else?

Wow, 2 years!! It would have taken me 7. I could go crazy on that making some boxes and frames. One of these days… Great work!

Great job! I really like the that big fence. I am sure the time you spent on it will be well worth it.

Great table! Looks almost too good to use! I said ”almost”. If it were mine, I think I’d finish it with several coats of good Polyurethane – but there would be good arguments for other finishes.

It looks like you used MDF for the fence? What is the top made of? What finish do you plan to use?
Beautiful work!
