No it was made for a work bench .Take 8 nuts off and the base is in pieces for storage .The top just lifts off. The finish on the oak is steel wool/vinegar and peroxide (home made aging stain) almost turns the oak black. I can switch between a butcher table and a workbench in seconds .Just have to build the workbench

Im liking the aluminum idea as its thin horizontally , which should be better as your not extending the router out as far.

Nice outcome on the table to Rich
Thankyou
strong, light and simple is what I was looking for. and yes the marks really work . Bits 2 1/4 marks are 1 1/2 good overlap for a smooth finish

Simply excellent!

I would like to do something similar using my Festool OF1400 router which is quite heavy but on a smaller scale to plane cutting boards.

I have just made my first cutting board but caused a hollow using a sander right in the centre of the board trying to get rid of the glue squeeze-out.

Please can you advise the size of the aluminium angle iron particularly the thickness. I have some already but am concerned it might be too thin.

Many thanks.

Nice Job Rich.

Curious, did you sense much deflection in your jig when you were sliding the router or did it seem nice and solid.

Michael; in theory at least, there shouldn't be any deflection. That's the beauty of angle iron; the adjacent legs add tremendous stiffness and strength to the other leg.
It comes in two styles, Structural and Architectural. The Architectural has clean sharp corners, no molded-in fillets

You jig looks like it could handle about a 36 slab, is that about right?

Very smart move raising the router so you just adjust bit height to set thickness. You could also use low friction tape in the channel to smooth out sliding. Really good idea to mark the spacing as well. Welcome to the Forum, by the way, darn good first post!

This was only 1/8 or .125 of an inch thick but 3"x 3"
3.17mm x 76x76mm

Many thanks.

No decernable deflection
