Default Router Lift

Hello,
This would be my first attempt at a router table. My first part of the table would be the lift. The only reason I am taking a stab at making was the price of the lifts I still have work on the lift, wooden clamps, band clamp. I will be adding a DC gear motor to drive the lift.

I've seen several home made lifts from plywood lately and the owners said they worked well. Al B. Thayer had a version that would flip from vertical to horizontal and was selling plans for it for $10 I think on ebay.

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.
