Building my own router table-question
Im going to "roll my own" so to speak, and plan on using some fairly heavy duty metal, backed with 1/4" (i think) hardboard for thickness. Naturally, this has pointed out the need for a new tool (a thickness caliper), which makes it all that much better!. you all think this will work ok? seeing the ready made ones out of plastic or metal for 80 bucks and up, i just cant justify the cost, so i will try to make it.
Next, for the fence, what is the consensus, putting in a rail system, and then building a fence to that? or should i make one that clamps on the outside of the table?
Once i have enough experience, i will start answering these pretty simple questions too, but i gotta get that experience first, so thanks in advance for helping me out.
