Default My New Router Table Top V 2.0

Over the past few weeks I have been focusing my attention on my routing capabilities in the shop. I built a new router fence about a month ago and now just finished up a router table top. My next venture will be to create the support for the table top. I will be doing much research in the forum on table height, support techniques, adjustability and portability, just to list a few characteristics. Or maybe... I should just leave well enough alone and use what's in the pic below. Thoughts???

Whatever works for you is great.
Stability would be an issue, I think. Working on small pieces would be good, but larger pieces would tend to topple you over, wouldn't it?

Looks like a great fence and top though.

I have seen a table like that just locked to a workbench with a couple of C-clamps.

Make sure it is secured in place before you use it....

Nice job on the fence but i think you would enjoy it more with a bigger bucket. Of course it makes it easy to take of shavings. Show us your table when you get it done. I really like being built into my table saw. Gary/Florida

Keith,
I'd be concerned about overheating the motor as I don't see any provision for airflow.

Default My New Router Table Top V 2.0

Sorry guys.... one of the downsides of the forum entries format... jokes are hard to discern. The bucket was a joke.

However, after much deliberation, I decided on keeping things portable with as much latitude and flexibility as possible. So here is the new router table top V 2.0 on a portable work table that can be used in the shop or in the field. The work table has lockable wheels and removable table tops to accept a router, drill press, grinder, belt sander and utility table top.

One thing you learn on the forum, Keith, is how to interpret responses from some of the members..

I know from a previous experience that my Aussie sense of humor is easily misunderstood and I have to be careful in my responses. In this case however, I was not joking. I have seen a video where Gary Rogowski uses just that method.

You have to be careful as they are a hard audience........VBG (signifies joke - tongue in cheek)
