Hi.. Hoping to learn as much as I can as fast as I can. Retired Police Officer currently working as Director of Security for a school district. However I will retire from this job in June. Have only been working with wood for about a year. Love it...Been using my router table to make signs for local functions. Need to make a router table looking for direction.

Hi twitt

W e l c o m e . . A b o a r d !!

Have tou watched The Router Workshop on TV or on thewoodworkingchannel.com ??

All kinds of Router tables are talked about... they can be a simple or complex as you want them to be...

... kinda depends on how much you use it... does your shop have the room to have a fixed dedicated space for a router table or would a smaller table that is clamped to a workbench, etc. good for your needs?

Take a look at http://www.oak-park.com/ for a lot of good ideas...

Ask all of the questions you want... don't be shy...

Hi Twitt.. If you happen to see a man hanging out of a dumpster, he's OK.. It's only Bobj dumpster diving again.. No need to arrest him..

I made a table out of 3/4" MDF with a rousseau plate for the top, and some shelf board for the bottom.. Nice and easy.. You could get as simple, (plywood screwed to the base of the router clamped in a vise), to as fancy, (full base cabinet), as you like..

Hey twitt. Building your own router table is a lot of fun and a great way to gain practice. There are a lot of posts here on tables and fences so just search around and pick up some ideas on what you might like. When you decide, all the help you will need is right here waiting for you to ask. :confused:
