hello, just wanted to say hi and if anywone has any recomendations as to brand, accessories. Is it best to build a router table from baltic birch. Or should I just buy one with all the trimmings. Thanks, John
Hmmm, a topic that has NO right or wrong answer.
I always recommend purchasing a relatively cheap table first. Why? Once you have one, this will now give you better idea's on ways to improve what you have. Right now, do you know if you need all of those "bells and whistles" that many have? Take a look at the Oak Park table. It's a simple table that does exactly what any other table will do. No, I'm not saying purchase this table, just take a look at it. Again, this option will atleast give you idea's on what you need.
Building your own is a very good way. But, again, do you really know what you really need? No point in placing a miter track, (T-slot), in your table if you will never use it. No point in spending money on something you'll never use.
Lastly, as others have said, browse these forums. Study the pics of others tables. Have questions about them, don't be afraid to ask them. This is why we're all here.
BTW, welcome to the forum.
