I have been following Stevinmarin Router Table Build videos ( great videos, go take a look ) and wanted to get in the act. I already have a dedicated router table I built a while back, but for some reason I wanted to build this one for a backup. The table is 22’ x 20’ 3/4 . I found the plans online ( ) and the Cherry, Maple fence and maple plywood are scrapes from other projects. This table and fence took me about 6 hours, had to glue up the maple, go get longer screws for the router and I finished it with spray shellac. So you could say this is a free router table ( except for the screws ). I think one could make it in under an hour if you had to. I have tried the router table a couple of times, and it works great. Over all a fun and useful project. If anyone decides to make this table let me know how it turns out. Thanks for looking.

Looks good, I hope you get a lot of use from it.

Simple and effective. Very nice.

Have your say...
