Rotary Tool Router Table
Small projects are easy to make when you have a tiny router table. A good rotary tool is all you need.
We have several routers and router tables in the Woodsmith shop. So it’s a bit of a stretch to say we “need” another router table. But this is a different deal. Honestly, it’s a mini router table. It’s mini because it uses a rotary tool instead of a full-size router. Like clamps, you can never have enough routing tools. If you don’t already have one, rotary tools and their matching router bits are readily available at your local home center. And they do a bang-up job when it comes to making things on a small scale. Despite their size, there’s little drop-off in getting precise results in most woodworking tasks. Building on these qualities was the driving force behind this project. It starts with a generously sized tabletop that has a no-maintenance plastic laminate top with a miter gauge slot to aid in the routing process. As for the maple fence, it’s got a T-track as well for featherboards and stop blocks.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
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.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
