Default Thanks for Having Me!

Just wanted to say Hi. Pretty new to woodworking, more or less started out remodeling my house, one things leads to another then bang!! Gotta a garage full of woodworking tools, go figure. In the process of building my own router table with cabinet, everythings turning out great but fence in another issue. Made one form 1/2 mdf but not accurate at all. Open to any ideas or suggestions. Problem is my table is 27x48 inches no one really makes a fence for that table size.

My first thought is the 1/2" MDF is not thick enough. Plus that length, it may be difficult (though not impossible) to get something perfectly straight just using MDF. You may want to consider using angle irons (or angle aluminum) for your fence. Get something you know that is bent at a perfect 90degrees, and flat along both faces. This will ensure that your fence will be accurate.
