Default router table plans

hi everyone, this is my first post on this site so please excuse any mistakes i might make. i'am disabled and have to do any work sitting in a chair so i'am looking for plans or ideas for a small router table that i can move around easily. i have limited space so it has to be small and light enough for me to be able to lift it off a bench onto my lap to move it, something similar to that used in the router workshop looks to be ideal. any ideas will be gratefully appreciated.
thanks broady18

Hi Kev - welcome to the forum
Tons of router table plans out there. Find a post by BobJ3, he has a link in his signature to a bunch of them. You may also want to take a look at the thread "Wanted, pictures of your table", originally posted by Old Chipper. I'm at work right now so can't dig up the links at the moment but browse around the forum a bit and I'm sure you will find something you like.
Good Luck

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Interesting link, Daniel !

http://www.woodsmith.com/files/issue...uter-table.pdf might suit. You could get a wheelchair under it.

Cheers

Take a look see here: Special Needs Woodworking - Router Forums

I believe there might be a few tables there that can give you some ideas.

Kev... would a wall mounted router table be a consideration? Something that drops down to use, then folds up and away when not in use. Open bottom to pull your chair (assuming a wheel chair) right up to. Dust control would be a minor issue I think. Alot of clever folks in here!!!

Just throwing darts here....

Just throwing darts here also

Pickup one of the under the kitchen counter pull out trays,mount your router to it,than just pull it out over your chair,most are made to support about 80 lbs..out about 24" from the counter edge..or the type that pulls out and lifts up and locks in place..most come with the lumber in them...( hardwood top board )
