2015/01/27 - Folding Router Table

I was perusing a recent "special" magazine edition from Shop Notes and ran across plans for this Folding Router Table.  I didn't like some of the elements of their design, so I made my own.

The primary changes are listed below:
  • Used F-clamps to hold the fence instead of t-track (cut down on cost)
  • Made it a little wider (26" vs. the original 21.5")
  • Changed the way the fence attaches when folded
  • Decided not to use clamps toggle clamps for router mounting, instead just drill for mounting screws
I assembled it over the weekend.  The design worked pretty much as I had planned.  Pics forthcoming.
