Default Table for routing wood. What will they think of next?

So you want to build a router table.

Here's how they use to do it.

What will they think of next? Maybe color on your TV.

Aaah the good old days angle iron and steel with a block wood top, non or your incra fences or pressed laminated tops. Yet I feel my old wooden moulding plane up on a shelf somewhere gathering dust with its fancy blade shapes was a revolution to stone age man ha ha

Speaking of old molding planes I haven't seen mine since I moved to the new house!

Maybe I'll have to build me one of them router table things.

I went to an estate sale not too long ago where the guy had a bunch of old electric motors in his basement with different sized pulleys (which I bought). I bet he had a setup like that back in the day. Those are the folks that made our modern day marvels a possibility!

I inherited a book from my grandfather which pretty much tells you how to build your shop out of old model t parts. Got to love the ingenuity!

The interesting thing about some of the old tools is the fact some of them will out-do the modern incarnations.

When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.

Myself, I'd wish there was a place to the metal parts to help make these type of machines so I could make them.
