Well if it wasn’t for Shopnotes My shop would be bare. I Liked the design of this Horizontal Router Table and I had a Router that needed to find a new resting place, so I killed tow birds with one stone. The Table is was made of plywood and some phenolic. The Router is an old but still working Black and Decker 1 hp router. As you can see in the pictures the wings come off and they hide away inside the table. Very nice tool for a shop.

Interesting idea Charger. How does it compare to using table mounted system?.

Again a nice project. This is something that I probably could use in my shop.

I could have used that one today . I needed to ,run a roundover cut on a piece the already had a rebate on the outside.
I was certain that the rebate was diffferent from side to side. Running from the top of the piece could have eliminated my problem.
(p.s It’s about where the bearing sits)

Next on my list.
Shopnotes is one of the best mags out there right now.

Don, That is issue number 90. It’s called the 3 in 1 table tool.
