Quick & Easy Router Table

This simple router table will get you started woodworking quickly, but later you can add a few options for even more capabilities!

This router table is packed with some impressive features. But what I really like about it is that it takes only one 5' x 5' sheet of 1/2" plywood and a weekend to build. Fast construction isn’t the only thing going for this router table. For starters, the top is a full 20" x 32". But there’s more to it than pure size. The top tilts up for easy router access. The heavy-duty fence makes accurate cuts a snap. And it adjusts quickly and locks securely to the tabletop. The case, built with simple, no-frills joinery, can be quickly clamped to a workbench or even sawhorses. And there’s a drawer at the bottom for storing bits, wrenches, and other items.
