Welcome to the forum, Roy! Add your first name to your profile to clear the N/a in the side panel. Add your location, as well.

That's a nice looking table. Hope you get to use it often and show us your projects.

Welcome to the forum Roy. As been said, nice looking table. After building mine, and I cheated by buying the top/fence, I found that it opened the possibilities of what a router can do safely. You still have many safety concerns but the use is a bit easier as you are moving the wood with the router stable. Did you install/design for a starter pin when not using the fence? Not hard to do put can be an important feature you may want. If you haven't already been schooled on using a router properly you may want to read the info Stick provides. Those bits are sharp and spinning fast and flesh is far softer than the wood we typically cut. You'll know quickly if you've messed up.

Make sure you have a speed chart for selecting proper speeds for your bits, small diameter=faster speeds, larger diameter=lower speeds. Know the proper feed direction and make test cuts on scrap. And I usually use that cheap scrap to start with before the good stuff hits the table. Also check out the available jigs both to buy and build for a particular cut/style you may need. They were made to make things far safer. And having a switch with a stop paddle or similar makes it easy to stop the router with your knee/hip whatever just in case.

Enjoy the forum and all it's available knowledge and willingly helpful members.
