Gene, that is one cool piece of equipment. Is it something that someone is building one-at-a-time? Some parts almost look home-built. Either way, it appears to have been very well planned and executed! OPG3

As Gav noted earlier, Sante' posted it a while ago but I didn't see it.
Apparently, he (Champy) built it in his shop.

Where would I start with that? when saw it last time I thought it would take a month or so just to learn what it would do and a few months just to master , but I bet it would be fun to try

Very impressive design and construction. It even has a homemade miter guage!

By the time I'd complete the build of something like that, I'd be too old and frail to use it ...

I am already old and frail, but with just a little bit of prodding I could be convinced to try my hand at building one as close as possible to it without plans and using the pictures to guide me.

Granted the table Gene Howe posted pictures of is a work of art but after careful consideration and thought I came to the conclusion that I do not need something like that cluttering up my shop. I have a perfectly good router table that will do anything that one will do except the horizontal functions. A router table is a router table is a router table as far as function and usage. Primarily the only thing that makes one different from another is the cabinet design.

When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.

How did you make the Miter Gauge? I'd like to make my own cause I generally can't afford to buy one.
For what it's worth I made a 12"x12" router table inlay, only messed up one hole that mounts the router to the base. Simply because I don't have a drill press anymore, other then that it'll work once I make the table. Also working on a edge guide, guess I'm bout half way done with that.
Any advise is GREAT!
I have a Skil 1810 fixed base router.
Also if anyone has thoughts on making an skillsaw inlay and a jigsaw inlay that would be great as well. And shot for that matter a homemade drill press would be pretty KOOL! I've seen one my former boss has in his welding shop, It's old as the hills. None of it is homemade but same idea except you could remove the drill if need be.
