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.
