This seems to be the year when I revisit my early made shop fixtures. Everything is getting an upgrade, including the big router table. While the new and the old looked very much alike, the old had been modified numerous times to settle into what I thought was its best design. It was well used and showed the battle scars of my amateur attempts to become proficient at using a router table. Yes, many parts shot out the door to my shock and amazement. The newest version incorporates all the added functionality of the old with better joinery and construction techniques. Once again solid maple with a strip of padauk for color. The best part of this is the ability to use the wixey unit on the table saw fence for more precision with the router.

-- Some of my most creative moments have been when I've had to cover up an error in my woodworking.

Looks very nice. I recognize the Rockler universal fence clamps too. I have a wixey on my TS also, but no router in the wing. Hmmm.

Joe,

Looks great. Adding the Padauk makes it right purty.

Very nice, who makes the miter slide that is attached in between the fence rails?

Nice looking fence. I like the chip collector in the front.
