Project Information

Since I have a small shop, I had to optimize my space and take advantage of the Biesemeyer fence's accuracy and make it do double duty. My girlfriend's dad helped me route out the plate recess in his big shop. It was quite the bonding experience. We made a template so that I can make multiples in the future for the same plate.

Nice job. I made one close to that for my contractor's saw when I was in my garage.
I started with the same insert also.

Very nice. I have always had my router on a table saw wing. I think it is a great use of space.

Good job also,
Steve

Did you work from a plan or did you design this yourself. If you did this from a plan, where did you get it? this is a project that I like to do.

There is more to bonding than just the wood. Nice job Woody, let's hope the girlfriend outlasts the router table.

I based it loosely off of the small table that came with the saw. I extended it beyond the tubular rails that register the fence by an amount I felt safe, roughly 2/3 bolted to the rails, 1/3 cantilevered. I oversized the poplar to give it more vertical rigidity, and of course, it had to completely encompass the router table plate. Finding formica sheets was expensive, so I found some particle board shelving that already had a laminated top at HD/L's. This simplified matters, but chipout was a problem on the laminate. Make sure to mask everything and feed slowly.
