With its large, smooth top and easy-to-adjust fence, this router table is the perfect way to expand your arsenal of shop tools. Built upon a rigid mobile base, the table’s cabinet provides plenty of storage for all your bits, wrenches, and routers. Up top, the business end of this router table is set over a system of thick maple stringers that will keep the tabletop sag-free for years to come, and allows for easy access to your router motor. Best of all, it’s a snap to make. Dowel joints hold the support frame together, and the cabinet is made from MDF held together with screws.

- Great inspiration for a router work station Review by Hugh
Having built my own router table some years ago, using an old table for the base and a superstructure similar to this plan, I am now upgrading to the excellent plan that I bought from Tauton Press some time ago. Just looking at the colour photo was enougn to convince me. Now I find out if I'm and "intermediate" cabinetmaker!

- @Brian Review by Robert
I'm not rating this project.
The router lift is a Kreg Precision Router Table Lift Quik Lift. Mike, the guy that made the video probably doesnt want to endorse the product but to focus on his plans.
I've built an enclosed router table and I have to say that it has it's pluses and minuses. Even though it contains the dust, it causes fine dust particles to build up in the router itself shortening the router life.
Personally I have a large dust collection system and a shop-vac. The 2-inch dust collection port doesnt cut it for me. I would fill up my shop-vac in no-time. I would design a 5-inch port underneath somehow AND a 5-inch port above the table.

- What about dust collection? Review by Brian
I'm in need of a new router table and this looks interesting, but what about dust collection? That open area where the router resides will not contain the dust generated during use. Do the plans include optional enclosure and dust collection?
I'm also interested in the router mounting plate. What is it made of and how thick?
I cannot see the paid content of this site, so if you want to sell plans you need to tell us something about the plans. I'm not going to spend thirteen bucks on a pig-in-a-poke.
