Benchtop router table with fence and removable insert made out of 3/4” MDF, 1/4” MDF and scrap plywood. Not the prettiest table but it is flat, smooth and cuts wood. Inside the table is an old Black and Decker router that was handed down to me from my grandfather. The dust port on the back of the fence does a nice job at catching the huge amount of saw dust that is produced. Not a nice shiny new router but this is the one I keep mounted in the table, guess I am a little sentimental. The dust port on the back of the fence does a nice job at catching the huge amount of saw dust that is produced. Adjustable knobs and self adhesive measuring tape (added after pictures) make lining the fench up easy.

I really like it. Are you planning on adding a split fence to the front of the current fence? Good job!

I doubt it, I actually made this about a year ago and I really want to make a table saw extension and clear up even more floor space. Once i make that one it will most likely have a split fence.

Very cool. I want to eventually make something like this for myself. Thanks for the pics!

Looks good to me. I have a Skil router table. It looks nice and fancy, but the inset is done so poorly that you wind up pushing your stock over three different level surfaces to get to the blade. It kind of works for larger stock, but not for small stuff. So I’ve been thinking of making my own, something a lot like this.
