Decided it was long past time I built a router table for the shop. So I dug out my copy of 'Router Magic' and picked the benchtop router table design. Followed it pretty close so far:The tabletop is 16x20, but I think I need to cut another piece out of the countertop I've had kicking around forever. I forgot about the edge treatment which I left on, and now it 'fits' but is offset to the right, which means very stingy clamp spacer for the simple fence I'm going to put on there. Here is the 3/4" thick bottom of the table, which will fit into my newfangled workbench, and get clamped in here: above that is a 1/2" piece of borg ply, and then 3/4" side and back walls, plus gussets on the front edge: I took a break to cool off, and now it is a bit late to be cutting and what not out in the shop, so I'll get up tomorrow and finish it. I'm going to simply dedicate a fixed router base to it, and it will have a small opening, about 1 1/8 or so. I've only got a PC 690, so no panel raising bits for me.
