Default New Table Finally Finished

Hi All:
we have been wintering in Florida and I was getting bored so I decided to build a new router table to make some bowls, signs, and other medium sized projects. The were two problems though, the first being that my whole workshop is at home in Canada, and the second was that I live in a trailer so need to work outside. when viewing the photos please keep in mind that all I had to work with in the way of power tools was a 3/8 inch drill and a skillsaw. Its a little rougher than I would like but it is functional and I'm very happy with the way it came out. I won't bore you with the construction details but if anyone is interested Id be more than happy to post. I did get a lot of inspiration from tables I have seen here on the forum. Here are the pics. Enjoy!

Thanks Gary. Yes it is. I have a small enclosed trailer, so I will be taking it back and forth every year, all things being well.

Very nice. Am working on one similar. Very slow going here. Have to think out how to attach the drawer slides I bought. Have to make a few mods. Like how the shelf slides out.

My philosophy in woodworking, as in everything else in life, is anything worth doing is worth overdoing!

OK Harold,

You made something real nice for yourself and I'll bet you have a big ear to ear grin, now it's time to use it to make a few things for other people and give them an ear to ear grin.

Nice looking table Harold!

Default Very nice, Harold!

Really nice job, how do you like the Incra fence? I have the TS/LS/WonderFence combo and couldn't live without it.

Best,
Bill

This is actually my second incra positioner. I bought the original one about seventeen years ago and thought long and hard about springing for this one, but it turns out that the improvements were enough to rationalize the purchase. I will move the other one to the table saw. There is nothing to compare to the Incra system. It's great!

Harold i would say that you did a great job with just hand tools.

The only thing I didn't see completly is airflow for your router to cool it, looked like it is completly closed in. Just a thought, would hate to see you burn it out after doing all that work.
