router table top

  1. Table-mounted Routing
    Hi everyone- I recently picked up a router table top, and there is a .022" inch dip in the table top (measured with straight edge and feeler gauge across longer width portion of table). If I flip the table over, the bottom side has a corresponding crown in the same spots. Is this flat enough...

    Hi Everyone, I'm looking at the Veritas table top. It's not an insert, it's a complete table top, stainless steel. Looks bullet-proof, less prone to sagging, chipping, etc than MDF. I would probably also purchase the fence and sled at the same time. Details at...

    Hi all, I would like advise on building a router table top. I have purchased 2 sheets of 18mm MDF of which i had proposed to laminate together. I have also purchased 2 sheets of formica to cover it. I have also purchased a router elevator plate made by UJK. Ok where do I go from here? Ps...

    What is your opinion of type of material to make the router table top? Formica laminated to a 3/4" MDF?

    I'm pretty new to using routers so I'm in a steep learning curve. After reviewing table tops until my eyeballs fell out, I decided on a Bosch benchtop table. I have to say I'm pretty disappointed. (more on that in another question I'm planning to posts). I understand a need for flat, but in...

    I have a piece of sink cut-out laminate for a router table top. I purchased T-track from Woodcraft a while back. I plan on squaring up the laminate and generally trimming the rough edges. How can I ensure that the tracks will be parallel to each other? I don't want them to be off so much...

    Hello to everyone. Working with wood is not a new area for me, but sucessfully using a router is. I love to make my own stuff like moldings. I can see the great use a router and table setup can provide. I have been routing by hand using guide bars and that is just getting old. SO, I am so glad...
  8. Table-mounted Routing
    Last December someone asked a question about making your own router table. I viewed the video and thought it was absolutely great! It went through how to create the right size opening, where to place the opening on the surface, etc. Since that time I have had the need to create my own table...

    I've been planning on getting one of the new Unisaws with the 52" Bieseand installing a router lift in it. While looking at competing saws, I noticed the Powermatic is available with a laminated maple slat top and end vise. My shop is/will be a two car garage but, since my dear wife expects to...

    I would like to build a router table, but I can't find a convenient place to get laminate or some kind of material for the top and fence.

    I think I want to build a router table top because 24 x 32 is a bit small and I can make one sized to my choice. Would 2 layers of 3/4" baltic birch plywood with a laminate surface be flat enough? Given some of the limitations gluing MDF and screwing into MDF to attach to my cabinet, it seems...
