Folding Router Table
This briefcase-sized package transforms into a full-featured benchtop router table in minutes, and folds up for storage just as quick.
A full-sized, permanent router table setup might be a great solution — if you have the space. But if you only use a router table occasionally, or you need a mobile solution, this could be the answer. This benchtop tool features all the accuracy and stability you’d expect from a full-size router table. And when it’s time to store the table or take it to a job site, just remove the router, fold up the table, and it’s ready to go. This quick transformation is possible due to a unique design and readily available hardware. The sides of the table are hinged to fold like a book. The front and back are then fastened in place with threaded knobs. Finally, the fence detaches from the top to become the handle for transporting and storing the table.

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.
