I made this router table with a temporary base. I wanna make a cabinet for it someday. I got the idea off of the internet somewhere. It is laminated plywood and hardboard covered in counter top laminate, trimmed up with cherry and walnut. I got the router plate and t-track from Rockler. I had a band saw box that I made before and decided it would hold my other collet and extra little hardware for it. The fence is still in the works.

That’s a nice router table. I know you said it’s a temporary base, but make sure it’s not “walking” away while you work. Thanks for sharing.

Great looking top. I am currently doing the same thing, (building a top and fence w/a temp base). What size is the actual top surface? And why did you go with laminating the top yourself? I’m trying to decide if I want to do that or go with some melamine. Thanks ahead of time for any input, and enjoy that table. I can’t wait to finish mine.

This size of the top is 24×30x1.25 in thick. I went with laminate because it was something i knew how to do(once before). I just laminated it all together then squared it up and trimmed it up. I just woodwork as a hobby but since i made this I have been playing with it everyday. I dont have much room in my 14×22 shop so i had to go with a router table i could store easily. Hope it goes well
