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.
