Angus, this table is the same as the most recent version of the New Yankee Workshop router table minus the goodies from Rockler woodworking. You can watch Norm use it on the show on PBS. It performs very well.

Hi angus

I can't say anything bad about this setup, I know they are sold on eBay all the time and it's a copy cat of Norm's (NYWS)
If you are thinking about this type it would be best if you make your own with Norm's plans.

But that's just my 2 cents, you would save big time ,if you make your own not to say anything about the pride by saying I made this.

Many menbers have made one like Norm's and they are all great router tables.

Thanks for the input on the table in Canada - there is two versions of this on ebay - I guess I'll' try to build one - maybe the cost of the material will be easier to explain than the cost of a table. - I'm a self taught novice just don't know if I have the ability to do. The wife says I just enjoy the smell of wood and making sawdust. She gets mad when I say I'm not capable.

You may enjoy this latest blunder of mine - I came home last week and there was a food processor on the counter - I asked where it came from and why and was told it was to chop her walnuts for the fruit cakes - I replied by saying that it's not that we can't afford it but do we need a 50.00 food processor to chop nuts? She smiled and said no, and said she'd take it back. As she was putting it into the box she looked at me and said "just wondering do we need a planer. tablesaw, band saw, 4 routers etc etc."
Being quick on my feet I said, honey what I meant was do we need a 50.00 food processor to chop nuts or should we have a more expensive model that will do other things. We now own a 325.00 food processor, sausage stuffer, etc etc.
There are times it is wise to keep your mouth shut!

Hi Angus

Silence is golden they say ,,,,
But it sounds like home, the boss has 3 sewing machines and they all took a a crap 3 weeks ago and I said no big deal I can fix them , "Silence is golden" well she now has 4 sewing machines 3 that don't work and one new one ( 400 dollar computer type) that Fedex dropped off 5 days late.
It was going to be a Xmax. gift for her but that didn't work out right because we got SNOW in Colorado and closed DIA airport for a day or two.
It was funny because she said I think I'm going to pickup a new sewing machine and I had one on the way .

Had to talk fast on that one then she bugged me for 6 days, day and night when it didn't show up on time for Xmax.

Silence is golden, have a good one

Angus, the premise of The Router Workshop is "simple is better". Mind you the above mentioned table is very nice and has lots of storage. There are many other excellent plans out there to be considered. The first table I built was with a plan from ShopNotes #1. This was my first "Major" project and it came out great. So great in fact that my buddy came by while I was putting the wipe on polyurethane finish on the oak trim and told me it was going home with him. I laughed and thought he was kidding but he took out his wallet and gave me many reasons why I should let him take it; all those reasons had presidents on them. Trust me when I say you can build your own table and will be delighted with the results. I like the ShopNotes plans because they have step by step instructions, jigs you can build to help with the project, multiple ways to build and best of all they are practicle and perform.

I'm curious.......I am from Nova Scotia...just what does this pretain to ......something that was posted on ebay site regarding Norms' table or replica....I don't see the original thread ...............OH,BTW.....it wasn't me.
I have since viewed the ebay listings,and while they are pretty damn close to being Norm clones.....why isn't it possible for someone to develop a similar-look product......I mean almost all router tables are similar in style and technique......I did make one of Norm's tables,but it was his first one(most popular) and I do have the plans.

Dave, if you click the link in Angus's first post you will see the table mentioned. It is the same as the NYW deluxe router table without the Rockler aluminum mounting plate and power switch. As far as building a table that is similar in appearance, more power to the person who does it. Even making your own copy of a table is fine.

To aniceone2hold and bobj3

First of all I want to thank both of you for your comments and advise. I guess what I really needed was a little push and encouragement for a one eyed woodworker to get the courage to try it. I've purchased rhe NYW video and the 2 tables from Shopnotes and after studying them I figure why not! I think I'll start with the open shopnotes table and move on to the enclosed shopnotes version.
My only confusion is in the table top - I made a mistake in reading other sources and they all seem to have different ideas.
Anyway thanks for the"push" when they are completed I'll post on show and tell.
