Daninvan,

Did you not see my Thread on Measure Once Cut Twice ? it's a mistake when I was dadoing the grove for the miter track I use a 6'' reversible pocket rule and I used the wrong end to mark the 4 1/2 '' from the edge so it turned out 2 1/2'' from the edge. The track is aluminium and the laminate is grey so I decided it looks fine. I think I will put some tape or paint on the other side of the ruler so I don't make that mistake again.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

Thanks Herb,
You're right, I love the storage. It has freed up space in my wall cabinets and now I will have to buy more tools to re-fill those empty spaces LOL.

Brian,

The table will not be moving around much so I chose not to use the casters. It also works well in front of my T/S as it is about 1/4'' lower, with the casters it would have been too high.

Charley,

This is actually my second table. The first one I still have and I mounted my B/D router with a 3/8'' round-over bit. It is a cheap plastic table from Canadian Tire but it did the job for many small projects.

I forgot to mention in my post that I am pleased to discover that my King 3 1/4 HP router fits on the plate, so now I will be able to use it for large jobs such as raised panels and I'll use my Bosch 1617 for most work.
