3-in-1 Multi Tool
Router table, mortiser, edge jointer — this compact, easy-to-build project does it all.
A palm router packs a big punch into a compact size. This makes it easy to use and gives you more control and great visibility. But sometimes it’s easier, and safer, to bring the workpiece to the router. So we gave our palm router an upgrade and built the multitool you see here. It allows work with narrow moldings or small pieces. And the fence and a unique router adjustment system makes it easy to quickly set up for a series of cuts, like dadoes or grooves. To give it all this versatility, the tool has a few handy, built-in features. First, a couple of workpiece supports provide greater control when working with long stock. In addition, you can attach a simple edge-jointing fence to quickly put a square edge on small parts. Finally, the router plate can be inserted vertically to easily rout mortises.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
