Default Router mount to foldaway table

Finished mounting my router to a heavy foldaway table that works great for limited garage space. The base will stay mounted and the table can still be used as a table. I have a fence that simply clamps in place with some Kreg clamps. See pictures of underside - screwed and glued a separate support panel for added strength on the plate lip.

Hello Henry, Looks like a nice table. Is it nice a sturdy, or does it move around on you? Also looks like an extra plate in the center, Is that your Saber Saw?

To me the plate mounted in the middle looks like a Kreg plate for mounting a faceframe clamp for pocket screw joinery.

Yes that's a Kreg plate for pocket screws - I use this table for everything. It's an old hospital table and it's solid as a rock.

Looks like a neat idea to me, Henry. I like it! Those of us with small work spaces are always looking for ways to multitask our tools and this is a good example of just that.

I'm getting ready to make some interior raised panel doors so the extra support will be good for the long rail and stile cuts. Not sure how my small table would handle such long pieces. I also still cannot find a raised panel cutter that will profile both sides of a 3/4 panel and leave a 1/4 inch tongue. The shallow panel profile on interior doors that you purchase would be perfect but I see no bit for this. These also have panels that are even less than 3/4 inch thick.

Good solution to the old cramper for space problem.

Good idea, Henry!

Hmm... We've got a table like (MDF top) that we use for holiday gatherings. She uses a tablecloth anyway... If I were to make solid insert rings for holiday use, I could probably fit *three* routers into that table... Wow!

I wonder where they would eventually find my body and if the courts would rule it "justifiable homocide"???

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!
