It's probably no cheaper than buying a smaller bench top table, but as you said, I can pretty much run anything through it.

That's one nice BIG table!!
Looks like you could do anything you want on it...
Nice job of using what you had to get it done.

|stutsmd||Beautiful table! While not near as fancy as the one vapochilled built, Shopnotes has no less than six router table plans listed.|

The angle is 1/4" steel, machined true. Taller fence would be a simple task of bolting it in place of the existing MDF fence. |

|harrysin||That's a beautiful table which should produce top quality work. The only thing that I would add is an alternative tall fence for things like raised panel doors. Did you make the fence shown, if you did I congratulate you further. Is the angle steel or Aluminium?|

Yes please! |
It sounds like I'm thinking along the same lines of building a table as you did.

It's a woodpeckers fence, bought from woodcrafters, just round the corner from me. |
You want a shot of the insert from underneath?

Nicely done! |
Did you follow any particular plan for your fence, but built from scratch based on ideas ad such?
Any chance on a picture of the underside?
(in the process of putting together my planning / ideas for building my own. I like the simplicity of yours)

Home made table
Started life as an instrument table for a mass spec lab.
Table came with a 1" phenolic top Unfortunately, I have nothing that even scratched the surface of it! so I laminated two 3/4" MDF sheets, then put formica top and bottom. Edged with some poplar and stained(badly )
Table insert is a Rousseau delux and it's a healthy 45"x32"
Weighs a little more than my first car
Using a Skil 1825, I have a fixed and plunge base, but I hate the damn thing! Terrible depth adjustment, kicks the bit out of true when you adjust it. So thats next on the list
