Talking Shopsmith Mounted Router Table

The Urethane has cured and I completed my first project on my new router table (made some wall mounts for glass shelves). This is my first table and I am new to routing, building the table was my first time using a router.

What do you guys think?

Interesting design and different. I realize the router configuration with the Shopsmith is much smaller but did you ever attempt to use that? The new table is going/using what router? It certainly looks well made and extra large. Let us know how well it works for you. I'm guessing that it will detach and the legs will allow flat storage when not in use?

BTW, welcome aboard.

Looks nice and could double as an assembly table.

Good job,and well thought out too. I think you are set up for anything coming up to rout. We are glad you joined the forum. Be sure you fill out your profile and let us know what tools you have. It makes a difference when you ask questions so we have a good idea how you should solve the problem. ALso a first name helps too.

The router I have mounted currently is the Porter Cable model 1002 w/ 1001 fixed base. I do have a plunge base for it as well, but have not tried it yet. It is a smaller 1/4" router, I am using Freud 'advanced' 15 piece bit set, it cuts great with those quality bits! I would eventually like to add a 1/2" PC to go with it that will fit the same fixed base.

Good catch on the dual-purpose design and flat storage. I designed it as a work surface, using bench cookies, clamps and stops for assembling, finishing, jigs, etc. The table will come off the SS and the legs are easily removed for compact storage.

I will work on my profile, I have enjoyed and learned a lot reading old threads!
