Default New to the forum

Hey all,

Joined the forum a bit ago and have lurked and perused the archives. I retired last year and have been finishing the shop. I am finally coming down to when I will build my first real router table. I am going to build two tables at the same time. One for me, and one for my brother-in-law.

Make all the mistakes on his ... LOL. Well bro is buying materials for both. Besides, setup once and cut twice = almost the same amount of work.

I already have for this project: Router lift, Incra Ultra lite positioner. Jessem miter slide, and Wixley digtal readout!. Being a "down-under" and all, don't know if you guys get your hands on this stuff or not. But I AM READY!

Hi Eric,

I read once that if you want to build yourself a boat, you build the first one for an enemy, the second one for a friend and the third one for yourself.....LOL.

Please post some pictures as you progress with the build - we are all ready to view other's tables.
