I built a router table fence using plywood (and later swapped the cheeks for melamine).

Split fence which allows me to insert shims behind the out-feed for jointing operations. It’s a fairly basic construction with a couple cute features. It has feet the slide along the edge of the table it sits atop to keep it perpendicular when sliding. Those feet, when the fence is stored away, have a storage area in the back of the fence so they can be screwed-in out of the way. There is also a dust hood that goes over the bit cutout.

I used only 3 tools to build this:

1. Power drill
2. Palm router
3. Circle cutting jig for router

ASIDE: If you’re wondering what those marks are inside the circles that needed to be cut, that’s Thale’s Theorem. It’s a wonderful formula for finding the center point of a circle. I used my clear mini try square for that.

Very nice fence. I like the melamine change. Great idea.
