Default Easy Router Table

Lot's of people seem to be looking for a simple router table. This one seems to have built in dust collection. I thought it was kind of funny.

hello Rusty,

how did you get that picture of my state of the art router station? lol

really, if it can be done someone will do it differently.

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.

Please Please Please edit your profile with a name and location so we can better assist you and make for a friendlier forum

It is a good idea.

My tabletop is not fixed to my router cabinet so I can carry it outside, put the router tabletop on a 2x4 base setting on saw horses (clamped tightly, of course), and let the sawdust fly wherever the wind takes it.

No, the trashcan is a special Porter-Cable trash can. It is $79.95. But there are additional charges for options.
Craftsman has one just like it for $12.95....but it is made in a DIFFERENT part of China.

You have to admit... the idea is appealing

And you could paint it to really fit in with the rest of the stuff in the workshop. And here I was about to build a cabinet for the top I just made!

That economy table should work just fine... right up until it is time to empty it. That sandbag would be a bit of a pain. You want a simple table with great dust collection for under $200? Oak Park is having a sale.
