So, it’s finally done…After a lot of research over the internet I chose this option and it works fine for me. Let me tell you first why is this table done this way.
There was couple of options how to make table and the reason why I chose Triton is because buying a router lift and router was over my budget.Triton have all the features that other routers doesn’t have (at least I couldn’t find similar) like router lift (micro adjustment) and 5 different colts (6,8 and 12mm and 1/2”,1/4”). .Here is a short video from YouTube that explains very well why I decide to buy Triton.

Even though I chose Triton, I was little bit disappointed with price list.They almost force you to buy all their accessories like table,modules,vacuum,jigs…. Triton is compatible only with Triton.
So I had a budget for this project,and buying whole Triton work center plus router also wasn’t a option ( Triton work center TWX7 – 500€ , router table module TWX7RT001 – 298€ , Router 1400W 280€ ). Then I decide to build my own table and insert modul inside the table top. That way I got extra storage and finally get rid of flying dust all over my garage :)
The table is made of plywood and painted with special mix of white color (10%) and lacquer. I didn’t use any plans. It’s made on size that fit to my working space.
I make just a couple of tests and it work fine.If someone is interested would I change something… that would be only middle section of table where is router. Now after I finish table I realized it was unnecessary to make it that big.

That’s it,now it’s time to make that table pays back :)

thats a great looking router table and your right about making the section for the router smaller,it would make dust collection better and give you more storage but still a great table.nice work.

That is too pretty to get sawdust on. Though I will say you have quite the dust hookups there, so maybe it won’t be so bad. Very nice build.

Not sure what the Kreg viewpoint is over there, but they have very nice router plates for the Tritons. All I am using are the routers, and everything around it is XYZ stuff. Difference in markets probably.

Killer router set up though, enjoy it. I agree with Ivan, you could probably sit a TV on it, when not woodworking.

Thanks for posting, and congrats on your 3.

Thanks for comments guys and top 3 I appreciate it !
Let’s hope it will get dirty very fast so the living room won’t have any chance :)
therealSteveN I was thinking about Kreg also,is’t hard to find it in Europe and when you find it price plus delivery is expensive. With this Triton table top is coming fence so with one hit I killed two bugs :)
