Good day

I hope that you will not be too scared from this "Marquise de sad" torturing device (Lets face it, it looks like that).

This router table past many modifications and improvements in the last 7~8 years and now it serves me as "3 in 1", router table, doweler and mortiser.

The table top is made of 21 mm plywood covered with floor panels and the router is connected directly to the floor panels so the height loss is only 8 mm.

Some day, I'll post the doweling method

Regards
niki

Blimey! I've been wanting to modify my routing set-up for a while, and just happen to have some scrap floor panels, and one of those very 'workmate clones'...

Excellent: I'm going to have a play... :)

It's a Japanese Hitachi M8, 100V 800W.
I think that the Americans does't have this model of 8mm shank.

Thank you Shady
The floor panels were added some 2 years ago when I made the floor in my house.
The idea was; instead of gluing plastic laminate on top of the plywood (and probably I would make it crooked), I have it straight and guarantied for 15 years.

Niki:

I love it when someone demonstrates that they have a "thinking cap" & use it. I would guess that when you are feeding lengthy stock through the router table that you employ the use of adjustable roller stands at both input & output. Excellent approach.

Hi Niki,
Really good stuff, as others have said it's nice to see someone thinking. As it happens I went and bought a table about a year back. (It did include a router & was good value but not quite as versatile as yours :!: )

Anyway, where did the metal work come from, looks like there's some kind of 'Workmate' in there but what about the other bits, surely you didn't make them yourself........or did you :?:

Thank you all for the kind replies

Shaun
At the age of 61 and retired already 5 years, I really don'tt care if somebody will copy them, anyway, they are so simple to make that Im doubt that somebody will buy them.

Losos
All the metal work is part of the workmate, I just removed the two wooden jaws and used it as it is.
I bought it in Japan, you can see it on this website.

Hi Carmime

Thank you very much.
I'm sorry but I don't have any plans of the project.
I built this table in 8 years and every time I added something new.

Regards
niki

This is a great post. I've been researching Youtube to find out how to build a diy router table, but could not figure out a good way to raise and lower the router bits. This way looks ideal and easy to make. I will give it a go.
