I needed a quality router table for my wood router. After watching “Uncle Norm” build his on TV, I thought I’d make one of my own. It turned out pretty nice. So, I’m gonna make it my 1st Lumberjocks project.

I’m collecting a few pictures now that I’ll put up shortly.

I have this on my to-do list (2 projects away) I would be interested in knowing any thing that might help me get this done, any gotchas etc…

Top looks good though

I made one also. It’s kind of like a right of passage!

Thanks. I took MANY pictures as I worked on this project. I’m writing up a step-by-step illustrated chronology that I’ll post to my wood router site. The first pages should be up soon. I’ll point you to them when they’re there.

This is a nice project that yields a very useful piece of shop furniture. I, like sIKE, have one of these on my to do list and have the NYW plans. So I may be starting one of these as well in the near term.

You did a good job on the build, by the way.
