1. Fence is 1 1/2 inches thick. Same material as router table top.
2. Fence with chip guard.
3. Fence with featherboard.
4. Holes in table are for Shop Vac connection under table.
5. Auxiliary fence for wider router bits.

I use HDPE cut to the width and length for my table. It looks just like the ones Rick and Bob use on the RW pgm and 16 feet of the stuff only costs me $7.50 on Ebay. (cost me more to ship it!) :D

It's that white plastic you see on RW. High Density Poly Ethelene. Another material that is good is the UHMW this is UltraHigh Molecular Weight ( Polyethylene ) like the HDPE you can saw drill and tap it like it was a soft metal except you can use woodworking machinery to do it.

re your homemade router fence. What do you attach to the holes on the top of the table that leads underneath to your shop vac?

Router fence

I went through the agony of searching for the best way to build a router fence when i mounted my router to my saw table, it is frustrating...pick something and try it, what i ended up witj was the third attempt, it works great and was relativly inexpensive and easy (if i did it you know it was easy)

It's an L shaped box 1 1/2 inch wide with an outlet for the vac hose.

I notice you have a Ryobi BT3000. I have one as well..Today I was making some saw dust and started making a router fence to mount on my saw fence...Funny thing but I came up with the same basic plan as yours. Mine was going to the right side but after seeing yours mine will go to the left...Thanks tons for the inspiration..
