Some really nice router tables there. My needs are different, I use the router table to cleanup the edges of acrylic and the stock is sometimes (most of the time) large panels 40" x 24", 36" x 24"

I want to thank the members who took the time to post their work. I am totally surprised that out of over 300 visitors to this thread only 4 of you have tables, or were willing to share their idea of a good table. In the short time I have been with you, I have seen dozens of questions about which table design is best. I figured here would be a thread in which we could get many ideas; a thread that new comers could go to for ideas. Everyone has their own opinion as to what design best suits their needs. And as someone here has said, the first one rarely is what we want anyway! We don’t know what we need until we have made one and used it. I didn’t mean for this to be a contest, but a thread for different ideas for the many different needs of the woodworker. I know that I must have looked at a hundred tables before I started on my first table. It would have been nice to have them all in one place!
Maybe as a newbie myself, I posted this wrong, should I have posted it as a poll thread?

Charles,
I gotta ask. Are you making aquariums? Looking at your post. It reminds me of when the shop had me make two 1,000 gallon tanks (one salt, one fresh) for the wing commander’s lobby. That was a learning experience!!

Well here's my OP setup with the new drawer. I can't see any reason to build something else.

Here is mine. I built it large enough to double as a work bench because space is limited. I believe it was member Trap, that posted one with a tool chest in it, so thats where I got that idea. Sears stores usually have 1 or 2 marked down with a small dent somewhere. There are no tracks, or slots, but I did build a fully adjustable fence with t-tracks that can be clamped on (it can be found in my gallery). Or I can use my Incra jig for a fence. The base is common 2x4's, doubled, and cut to form half-laps. The router hangs in an open ended plywood box. And the top is two layers of 3/4" mdf, wrapped with sappele.

"Now that what I'm Talking About" Guess I just needed to beg a little.

Deb, what's the white hinged box on the right? Looks like a vacuum table?

John, I like the idea of using a tool box. Did you change the drawer slides? Only thing I don't like is the slides on some craftsman boxes, don't open far enough. How wide is your skis, do you get any bowing? John and I been Talking about what is best thing to use for the rods.

James, I want another table but don't have the room. Does that one fold up? Looks like just what I need. Sure looks like a big router, what is that?

Rick, looks like a nice fence. Do you have a closeup of that?
Thanks for getting us started.

The hinged box is for router bit storage. I put the hinges on it so I could lift it to a horizontal position when selecting bits. Much easier then standing on my head to get at the bottom ones.
I don't have the vacuum plate, just a hose attachment on the left side of the table. It gets most of the dust that falls into the router area.
