Default Router Table

Looking for a medium priced table top router table. I have a Ridgid router set and need to complete my system with a table, some bits and maybe an INCA jig for dovetailing. Of course I am new to this and am feeling my way along.

Welcome. Allow me to be the first to recommend that you build your own.

Check the plates that are available from Rockler, Woodcraft, MLCS, etc. and then build the table around that to suit your needs.

Follow the link below for an updated "Norm Abrams" router table, plans, cut lists, etc all included and free. Agree with Ralph; build your own and then spend the years ahead filling up the drawers.

Great table. This is the best looking of this type i have seen. I am new to the form and just getting into routing. I have made a lot of tools and a few pieces of funiture and cabnets, but I finally have the shop to do so real woodworking. A router table is going to be my first project.

Welcome to the rotuerForums, Julysun. As you have already seen, there are many members eager to share.

Medium priced is very much an issue of perspective, so I am going to make a different suggestion. If you do not have a table already, building your own table presents a real chicken or egg situation. You almost need a table to build a table! Thus I am going to suggest that you look into the Oak-Park table. No bells or whistles, very much a simple is better and more versatile than many.
