Default Update Router Table Fence with photos

I have finally almost completed my first official router table fence. I picked up a Grizzly Shaper table/with slider a while back but it had an awful fence and I've never used it. Also, the slider was higher than the cast iron top and I had to shim the top level.

After looking at several google images as well as input from this forum I settled on a design. I know there will probably need to be some improvements in the future but heck, I don't really even know what all I can do with this table yet and suspect more will become apparent as I get more experience.
I sure had a good time building it.

Thanks for your help and thanks for looking,
Bryan

Looks nice Bryan. You are correct about using it and seeing what it does or does not do well. I'm still trying to figure out what I need a drill press table to do. I was using the mortising attachment on the drill press recently when I realized that I need a fine adjustment on the fence so that I can locate the mortises accurately. So either the final plan or at least one version of it has to have that. You'll find similar things out with your fence.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Nothing wrong with that one. Its extremely neat compared to my scrap bits model.
Youll be a while before you need to improve anything, except maybe a bigger extraction hose if you cant remove the waste with that one.

Hey Charles,

I bought a bench top drill press and just built a little wood adapter plate that I can clamp a also wooden fence, board really for the purpose of making repeatable drilling. Someday probably, I'll get a grownup drill press once I have more room, and then I can work on building a table for that.

Good luck with your fine tune adjuster engineering.

Looks sweet Bryan - clean and neat. Just add a piece of laminate to the outfeed side between the sliding fence and the solid fence and you're all set for joining. Great job.

Hey B,

Nice fence indeed. Getting ideas on this, thanks.

As for the slider, would that help aid in cutting circular shapes.... arcs etc?
Looks to give some decent size circles. Whats the slide on that?

Hmm... others send wood on an angle thru a table saw to create special moulding.
I got a K3 slider and probably could do some decorative arc moulding like so. Oh hell no.
Cool idea tho.

The slide is just a sled for bigger panels I guess.

Thanks!
