Here's a couple of shots of the benches to go with it. The were made of pine as well. I suspect three boys will give it all a good test and good working over. There is a couple of glue spots where there shouldn't be any and I just tossed on a walnut stain to darken it up.
I may draw up a set of plans, or do a how to later. One thing for sure a router makes everybody happy for one reason or another.
Getting my present before Christmas is worse than not knowing what it is. I'm still having to wait to use it. But I am getting things together for that day. Picked up quarter sheet of fiberboard and some luan for practice. And for $20 got this universal baseplate and some nylon bushings. I suspect the nylon won't last long. And the manufacturer knew that as well so they included a top hat bushing to adapt the baseplate to the brass bushing.
