Router Table Portable - DIY

Monday, June 22, 2015

I made a portable router table that can be attached to a work bench.
When I need it. I take it outside and put it on my workbench for routing.

Basically I carved a wooden board to be able to accommodate the router base.
If I use some ply-wood boards, it would be much easier to build a router table.
But I just used the material I have already had.

After lots of carving and little sanding, it fits perfectly to the router

Making Fecne


I routed those parallel slots from both sides of the board. So the lines didn't meet precisely.
That caused jerky movement of the fence when I adjust it. I might have to replace those bolts to thinner bolts.

  The center of the fence is cut where bits can go through.

My router table may not be precise for professional use but it serves my purpose.
I made a picture frame with it.

Having a router table expanded what I can make in woodworking definitely.


  1. Fundamentally I carved any wooden board in order to accommodate the router foundation. If I utilize some ply-wood panels, it would be much simpler to build any router table. But I recently used the material We have already had.
