Routing Small Parts
A few router table accessories make it easy to get safe, accurate cuts
One place where most router tables have trouble is routing small workpieces. The problem is large openings in the tabletop and fence can cause a small part to catch or dip in. This can spoil the cut and be unsafe. This router table sled holds small parts and lets you push the workpiece past the bit while keeping your fingers well clear, making the cuts with precision and safety.

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.
