Smile Newbie in California

Hello all,
I have been looking at router tables and can't (won't) afford the prices for the major brands.I would like to hear opinions from anyone who knows anything about the Adroni table made in Oklahoma.
Thanks in advance and I look forward to future questions

Hi Bob

They are nice tables,but we do have a member that also makes them ,you want to take a look see..

But I will say you can make your own by using Norm's A. plan.

Greetings Bob and welcome to the router forum. Many members have built their own tables; this is something you may want to consider. If you do you will get plenty of help from guys and gals that have done the same thing. BTW take some time and fill out your profile.

Welcome aboard And you can find a old end table by the curb and cut out a hole for the plate.

Thanks for the replys.I am always pleased by the willingness of woodworkers to share the hard earned knowledge with anyone who asks.
I have ordered Norm Abrams plans and will be building my own table,stand by for questions.

By the way Bob, I agree with the previous poster. For many years before the resellers got their claws into us, many of us, including professionals just would use a piece of plywood with a hole cut in it and the router mounted to the bottom. In fact, if you have a small shop, it may be the most space efficient solution. You can then clamp the plywood to your bench and you are all set. You can make a simple fence by drilling a board vertically on the edge of it into the far edge of the table, creating a pivot point. Bolt a screw through it, use a C clamp on the other edge, and you have a fence!

Sometimes, we make this stuff more complicated than it needs to be. At least that way, you are good to go, not waiting on the ultimate table.

HI chesterdad

But every time you walk in the shop you are saying I could have had a V-8 with just a little bit more work...

I didn't say I always followed my own advice! I have a real fancy router table from the plan that came with my fancy Jointech fence. It has a Woodpeckers Precision router lift, and the top is from Woodhaven . That is all before I "saw the light". If I had to do it over again, I am not sure I would have spent that much money. But it is part of the learning process!
