    Norms Router Table

    For those that have built this table or any type for that matter. What are some things to watch out for? Things you would have done different?

    6 things I am doing for sure:
    Will be mounted on 4" casters
    Woodpeck lift with 7518
    4" dust collection at back
    Double 3/4 mdf top
    Building case out of Baltic Birch
    Going to sand down the inside of the router compartment and wax, hoping to make it slick and easier to remove dust.

    If the plans don't call for 3/4 backing material, probably will do that because of the wheels.

    Sorry Steve, but I have no idea about what table are you talking about, could you post a link or whatever, I'm thinking about building one myself and I'd like to have a look at it.

    Thanks a lot
    Best regards,
    Toni

    suggestion,, on the dust collection at the bottom make a tapered shute to 4" pipe not 2".. also i used the space in the top on the right for a inset switch rather than a exterior mounted one.. also you need to have a recptical to get power to router and to the switch.. i took and had that mounted outside to make it easy to unplug the router when changing bits rather than rely on the switch to have it off.. i also had the holes on one side for 1/2" bits and the other side for 1/4" bits.. works for me that way just fine..as for rollers make sure yu can get it to stay put with rollers locked.. sometimes when running long or heavy pieces you get alot of force wanting it to move... like headboard sides on a sleigh bed

    Thanks Larry, that is what I have in mind for the dust collection. I like the idea for the plug also.

    The electric wires are behind that part. It is a dead drawer front.

    steve, don't build norm's router table, build steve's router table. use his as a starting point, but make it your own, and you will be happy.
