New router table user
I joined this forum a while ago to get some ideas for building a router table, so this introduction is a bit late. I still haven't found time to build the table I planned, so over the holiday I knocked up something more rudimentary... very rudimentary, see attached pics! Just a 24" x 13.5" MDF board (wider would be nicer but that was the offcut I had), a couple of 2x2 stiffeners underneath and the squarest bit of 3x2 spruce I could find as a fence.
On my first try using it, I snapped off a 1/4" straight bit after cutting about 2ft of a 1/4" deep groove. Not sure why - maybe feeding too fast? Finished the cut with another bit without any further problems.
