Default First Actual Woodworking Project: A Router Table

A friend recently gave me a new Ryobi (RE180PL1) Plunge Router. He knew that I have been getting more involved in household projects so he figured he would help foster this new area of skill for me. My neighbor gave me a set of bits that her deceased husband had and I felt compelled to make my first real woodworking project a router table.

After doing some research and learning from this forum, I took the task and some lumber and constructed table as attached. It took me a few weeks as time is always at a premium when you have twins and a full time job, but with exception of a finish coat, I consider this project to be done.

As you can see, it is mostly made of 2x4s and some MDF and some pine. I even put it up on wheels for moving around the garage.
