Thumbs up Router Table Picture

Hi Folks, here are two pictures of the router table I built using Oak-Parks router table plans. You can get their plans from http://www.oak-park.com. I posted these pictures because many of you watch The Router Workshop and wondered how the back of the router table looks like. Well this one is similar to the one Bob and Rick use. As you can see I posted a picture of the front and back so you can see how both sides look. Have fun and be safe!

Thanks! Sorry for the poor lighting condition. I took these pictures late at night and had to use the lights from the room. Later...

What's a good height for a router table.
I'm 5' 5".

The height of you router table top is very important.

If the table is higher than needed: then you will have to hold your arms above their normal comfort position, which will put strain on the neck muscles.

If the table is lower than needed: then you will have to bend over, which will put strain on your lower back.

Everybody is different in height so its better to measure 5 to 7 inches from the end of your bent elbow to the top of your router table top. If you within the 5 to 7 inch range then your table is the right height.

Just my thoughts,
