This is my first attempt at a router table. I think it looks awkward. However, it is quite with low vibration, which was my goal. A technique I never used before was tacking a runner on the bottom of the top to cross cut the end, Pictured. This allowed me just enough capacity on my saw to make the cut.

Now that beast isn’t going anywhere! I hope you built it where you were going to put it. I would hate to try to relocate it when finished. LOL. Nice work and the butcher block glue ups looks very nice.

Low vibration ? it would take a 6 or 7 on the seismic chart to vibrate your table. That is totally awesome !! Very nice job on all of it

Very nice and very heavy looking…Did you put wheels on it in case you decide to move it?

No wheels Greg, now that I have everything hooked to dust collection I won’t be moving stuff around.

robdem, the wood was left over from a barn I built from storm damaged trees. It is all oak and ash. About 2” x 3-1/4”

What fence is that?

It is a Jointech, I have this one and one stored in a drawer. I had the other one on an old craftsman table saw but now that saw is dedicated to box joints. I heard Jointech went out of business.
