Default Sommerfeld/CMT Router Table

Hello everyone,

It has been awhile since I posted last, but things have been crazy. I am finally getting around to getting my workshop and router table built and I need some help.

I go my father's Sommerfeld/Industrio router tabletop with a slightly used Hitachi M12V router. The router table top/fence has never been assembled.

I watched the videos that came with the top and it doesn't give the dimensions of the cabinet that Marc builds. I called Sommerfeld tools and they couldn't help.

Does anyone have any suggestions on the cabinet for it? I have the phenolic top where the router mounts directly to the top. I would like to make the raised panels just like his video.

Thanks for any and all help!

Keith

I will call Marc about this. I'm not sure how long it will take me to get a hold of him so be patient.

Thanks for the help. I can understand him not having the plans for it because they quit dealing with CMT a long time ago. I would think they still would have the dimensions somewhere in an archive?

Thanks again,

Keith

I have built this table, but at moment I can't find my plans , the measurements on the side pieces are 21" x 35" the front and back are 29" x 35"
This a picture of mine, Marc sold them in cabinet made easy, I build this to learn how to make raised panels

The sides fit between the front and the back ( so the sides finish measurements is 22 1/2")
So we finished measurement would be 22 1/2" x29" x 35" tall

I don't remember if the plans came on a CD and VHS or paper if I find them I will let you know

I found the cd online http://www.amazon.com/ROUTER-TABLES-.../dp/B000UZS7YQ

John,

That is exactly the cabinet I am looking to build. The front of the cabinet has the two drawers on the bottom. I have the DVD collection. That is where I got the idea from, but the plans weren't included on the DVD.

Thanks for reply.

Erwin,

Thanks for your reply. The link/plans on the Sommerfeld website are for his new router table top. I have his older phenolic style. His newer model is larger in size than his phenolic top.

Thanks,

Keith
