Default Router Workshop router table plans

Hello;

I watch the Router Workshop most every chance I get. Here on the Texas Upper Gulf Coast, the program shows three or four times a day! I really enjoy watching it.

I was wondering if there are any plans available of the router tables used in the show? Or maybe if anyone besides Bob and Rick have seen the back of the tables? They look very sturdy and straight forward. I wouldn't mind building one for my shop.

Thank you for any info.

If at first you don't succeed, maybe you shouldn't try sky-diving!

woodworkerdan, I will post a picture of my routertable tonight. I built it using plans I bought from Oak-Park. It is similar to the one Bob and Rick use in the show. Later...

Oak Park sells the plan for the table used on the show asd well as kits to build one.
Check out thier web site. The back of the table houses the router on the left,
it has a ceter partition with 1/4 inch datos in it, as well as matching 1/4 inch datos on the right hand end. they are for trays to hold bits, guide bushings etc.

Good Luck with it, Woodnut65

Woodworkerdan, Oak-Park has a nice set of plans for the table and should include a plan for a bench to set it on. I too would like to see the other side of the "Router Guys" show table, but they will not post one for some reason. I think we should start a poll to see how many besides you and me, would like to see the back side of their table. Just go to the yellow banner at the to the top of this page (Oak-Park.com) and click on it. Bueno suerte as they say in Texas. Dr. Zook

Anyone ever build Norm's router table from the "New Yankee Workshop"?

Hi garmtn,

Yes - I built the Deluxe Router Table from NYW and I love it. I now find the router to be my favorite tool in the workshop. The table was easy to build but the top was tricky. Cutting the miter track, slots for the fence, and the hole for the plate are the hard part. I ruined my first top with "chip-out" on the laminate top and learned to cut everything on the MDF first then route out the necessary areas. The first thing I built with the table was a raised panel door for the table. I thought it would be an appropriate first project for the router table. The table is quite expensive to make but I don't think you'll find a better table anywhere. I put my table on a mobile stand (Rockler) because I have a small workshop. See pictures attached.
Good luck.
Bill

I wonder if any of you router heads out there can tell me where I can go to actually download and print plans to build a router table?
Thanx in advance, Woodie

Bill, that is one fine looking table you have there. Norm would be proud. Well done.
