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.

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.
