Bob, you can buy the table for less than you can build it at: www.rt1000.com

Hi Bob1961, I ordered the plan and did build it. The plans are very straight forward, and lay out all the pieces well. I like the table for most of the work I do. It's a pain if I have to remove the fence to work on the table. I was thinking I would redesign the fence and table top. I don't need to remove the fence to often, so that project will have to wait.
Hope this helps.

Hi Bob

I build the older version of the table and used it on a regular basis. The only thing I don't like is the fence and dust collection. I wish Norm would make a set of plans to update the original table.

js:....norm did make a new plan with melamine backs stop that slide....

rmaxa:....i was thinking the same thing....i'm looking at making two t-slots from front to back that the fence would use but still be able to be removed like the t-slot the goes from left to right on the front of the table....that way just loosen the knobs and slide the fence off out the back of the slots to the rear of the table....i think right now norm just has holes in the table top with t-nuts and slots in the back of the fence for movement........................bob

Hi Bob

I'm also not a big fan of that type of fence you may want to take a hard look at the swing fence,,, no slots needed in the top... just two holes/slot in the fence base...most of the time the bit is in the fence or just in front of it by just a bit..

Default new yankee workshop router table plans

That RT1000 looks to be a worthwhile table. Not to sure about the small drawers. I built mine awhile back using baltic birch ply, cherry and walnut wood with Corian top. I believe the plans came from an old issue of American Woodworker that a friend had. Can't say I really followed the plans but it got me started on my own design. For me there was alot of enjoyment just making the RT. I've seen better but I like mine ..well... because I built it. The Corian, cherry and walnut were free and I don't remember the final cost. I considered just buying one (Jessem) but decided for the $600 plus I'ld do it myself. I have added the Incra fence. That was a nice add on. Here's a pic.

Hi woodchip7

Nice job on the router table

I sure like to see you also enjoy your other toys in the shop not just the big woodworking toys ..
