Finally built my own router table!!!!

It’s not perfect, but it’s better than the one I had before (NONE!)

The base is scrap 1×4 pine I had left over from some cub scout projects. The top is a 2’x4’ piece of 3/4 MDF with 3 coats of PolyCrylic. They are joined with Tight Bond II and Pocket Hole screws.

I just need longer screws to mount the plate to the router and I should be good to go!

I’m finishing mine up and have the t-track but am trying to get by using laminate flooring in place of the plate. Not so sure its gonna work yet. At best its temporary, but its saving me about sixty bucks until I decide to give in. Yours looks great. Thanks for sharing.

I did mine very similar a few months ago. Saved me so much money to spend on other tools and projects. Great job…..
