Default Latest temporary router table
Report Post Report This Post!

I've been doing some work at my inlaws wooden country house recently and had the need to mount my router in a table setup.
The place has been slowly undergoing renovation for the past year and there is a lot of junk around.
Low and behold I found a piece of 10mm phenolic about 70cmx70cm. It has a lot of holes in it but that doesn't matter. Nobody knows where it came from, and I've never seen it for sale anywhere here yet. I found out they still call it Bakelite, well actually in Croatian, Bakelit.
I also then found this great aluminium extrusion that has t slots on both sides, as well as both edges, plus at the end there is a nifty little locking device that looks as though it would lock into the t slot of another piece (if I had one)
It is perfect for making something like the Trend Vari jig
Trend 'Vari Jig' Adjustable Frame - Machine Mart

So, I mounted my router direct to the phenolic, clamp the phenolic to 2 drawers and then clamped the extrusion to the phenolic, and had myself a router table.
