Thumbs up Hi everyone

I stumbled on this site after I searched Marc Somerfield's router table. So far I read one review and it wasn't favourable. I am looking for people who own the Bench Dog table. I need to make raised panel doors to replace those dreaded white melamine doors we have now on our kitchen cabinets. Just wondering if I can get the job done with the bench Dog or do I have to go to a 32 x24 table?


Thanks for listening,
Larry W

Welcome to the forum, Larry.

I agree with BC, you do not need a fancy table to make small raised panel doors.

I have seen raised panel doors made on a table only 16" x 30"...

Having the correct cutter set is more important.

Hi Larry and welcome. About 3 years ago we bought a Grizzly table. It has absolutely everything you need for this kind of work and then some. For $140 delivered to your door you can't beat it. The $10 'oversize fee' is your shipping cost. Download the PDF for a better look.

Larry I'm sorry, I did not notice you are in Canada. This might help on shipping info. The weight of this item is 58 lbs. which is well within the requirements for UPS shipping.

That's okay Will I -pick my US freight at an American box and bring it across the border myself. I will have a peek at Grizzly, thanks.

It seems from the general consensus that a small Bench Dog table will work for me. The only hang up I have is using the Woodpecker's COP! sled. I would have to turn the fence around from the miter slot and use it on the back side. That just seemed haywire that's all. Thanks, everyone for the help, I appreciate it.

Larry a coping sled is a completely unnecessary tool. Take a look at this video and you will see why.
