You did a terrific job on this table and wall unit. Thanks for the detailed photo of the fence hold down - I think I'll follow it. And gotta love that outlet "relief".

Great job. Having a quality router table makes woodworking a lot easier. I really like the storage, keeping everything handy.

Thanks Steve. I opened that up fence lock in the one pic to show the set-up. In use you only have to turn the knobs very little. I drilled the screw holes undersize so the screws are basically locked in to the bottom piece. I glued the hardboard spacer into the bottom piece only. Those spacers were cut to size and dry-fit tested first. Works great (I was surprised) and no more hunting for the C-clamps that I was using.

Looks like a well built router table. Two guys in my woodworking club built router tables from the same plans and they seem to be happy. Relative to the dust collection, having an enclosure around the router will improve the under the top dust collection. I have the Incra Clean Sweep and am really pleased with it. Before Incra started marketing the Clean Sweep, they developed plans for a shop built unit and that design is attached.

I'm trying to get a way with a shop-vac. The router has a dust collection thing that I'm going to try. That and a fence port might work hooked to my vac. Even the table plans mentioned had additional parts for a dust collector but I'm trying to collect just from a cup like thing around the bit, not the whole chamber. I haven't done much testing yet and just bought some hose clamps to seal up the connections.

Thanks Ben, I saved your pdf in case my plan doesn't work.

Glad you like it, Alexis. The fence locks work great. I didn't invent the idea - just adapted it to my use. If you have questions feel free to ask.
