Great forum, the wealth of knowledge and helpfulness of all the members and some of vast experience is just a privilege- thanks.
I saw a few other newcomers posting pics of their projects so got the courage to show some of my humble attempts so far with the table I'm building.. Top mostly done about to start on the base soon.
As my first I know there's no way it will be perfect so it's just a leap in and learn experience.... and enjoy experience too!
The top is 30mm thick, 3 pieces of 9mm (23/64") MDF with a 3mm (1/8")melamine sheet for the top laminated together
Overall dimensions 925x625mm (36.5x24.5) including Tassie Oak edging
1)Triton MOF001 router (Thanks Desert Rat Tom- great little router!)
2)12mm 1/2" acrylic insert with height adjustment screws to get perfectly (or near as possible) level.
3)Quick release lock for fence, runs on aluminum bar rail, QR lever is from a bicycle seat clamp coupled with some 8mm(5/16") threaded rod (got the idea from a mini router table build I saw on Youtube). It seems to hold well thus far.
5)Offset from centre
The emphasis has been on keeping things flat and square, by using machined edges for critical points, and lots of checking with squares and straight edges. Hoping the results will be okay for a amateur learner at home. I'm happy with it so far.
Thanks for looking and the great forum.
