Nice quickie build. I particularly like the double T slots and the handles for locking the fence down. The trusses underneath are a good idea too, light and will really help keep it flat. You could scale this up pretty easily and put it on a cabinet. I always prefer a mounting plate, and to facilitate that, I'd make the 3/4 the bottom layer an inch smaller than the plate, then cut the half inch top to fit the plate and install some blunted tip screws as levelers. Glad you posted this. Looks like an item to share with noobies because it is so simple, yet robust.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

@Stick486 I agree. A great item for people with small shops as well.

Colleagues: glad it was of some interest.

Found it by accident while looking for router table plans. 'Gonna' re-build my router table as I really do not need the large New Yankee Workshop (and other designs) router table cabinet. The footprint is too large for what I do and I am getting tired of moving things just to get to what I need. Am going to build anew or just unpack the ol' tried and true Oak Park table that I have --someplace!

That is a great article and I wish I had a table like that when I started. It wouldn't be bad now.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.
