Router table, free plan

Fine Woodworking offers a free plan for my minimalist router table that you can download here:

The router table is minimalist, and the plans are, too. But I think you'll get the idea and be able to make one yourself. I use a Porter Cable router in mine, as it can be screwed directly to a sheet of plywood using machine screws. The plans do not show that the router base plate should be removed. The screw holes where the base plate had been will be the mounting holes for attaching the router to the table.

Since these plans are free, please share them with others, too.

I have been gathering online resources to share with my students from last week and next, and this article should be of interest. The minimalist router table is one I still use regularly and one that has lasted over 20 years.

I am getting ready for my class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking that starts Monday. If you are in the Northeast, and are interested in box making, there are still openings for more students in this class.

Make, fix, create and provide opportunities for others to learn likewise.
