May 23, 2008, Newsletter Issue #77: The Router Table

Tip of the Week

Those new to woodworking will discover that buying a router isn't enough; you will also need a router table. Woodworkers on a budget may not be able to afford a fancy aluminum table with a master control switch, but the good news is that you can build your own, using designs distributed online . This is a good way to save money, increase your woodworking skills, and trick out a new wood shop with a new power tool accessory all at the same time! You may well outgrow a small, home-built router table over time, but you can always pass along the table to another new woodworking enthusiast down the line. You'll need some multi-density fiberboard, plywood, and a few other inexpensive materials. Tools required? A saw, a drill, and a screwdriver in most cases.
