Introduction: The Router Table Fence

About: Desktop Support Technician by day ... Occasional hired gun rock drummer by night ... DIY home improvement enthusiast on weekends - maker of whatever I can imagine in between it all. I''s a good table for small projects or job site work, but I outgrew it rather quickly. The small top with recessed miter gauge track made cutting bearing edges on drums difficult. Milling door/window casings was also a challenge because I''s only a matter of time before it kills me.

Router table 2 is my shop made 4'' outfeed/assembly/router table. It''t noticeable, but if you are running a drum shell around the bit ... it'' Death for milling casings.

Step 2: Bit Hole

For the router bit opening, I marked the center of the board length and then intersected it 1 1/2"" Forstner bit. My technique is to drill from both sides to eliminate blow out - especially when using plywood. Lower the bit until it barely kisses the drill press table, tighten the depth stop, and go to town. The bit will puncture a small hole, which is your alignment point once the board is flipped.

The last step is to elongate this opening by cutting out the waste ... so that it looks like a mouse hole/door from the old Tom & Jerry cartoons. This could quickly and easily be done on a bandsaw, but that''s usually in the wrong position when I''m adding alignment pegs, which will make total sense once we get to the assembly stage.

On the base board, I marked a line 1"" and will be for wooden dowels. The center holes is drilled to 5/16""step-toolbar""stepBody""step-tip""step-question""step-comment""svg-pdf step-download download-pdf login-required verification-required""course""step4""step""SRG493KJEOIO6Y8""step-title""mediaset""no-js-photoset""Clamping Blocks""https://cdn.instructables.com/FD4/MKK4/JEOIO5D8/FD4MKK4JEOIO5D8.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&height=300""Clamping Blocks""https://cdn.instructables.com/FK4/2G8K/JEOIO5D9/FK42G8KJEOIO5D9.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&height=300""Clamping Blocks""https://cdn.instructables.com/FVY/BGOL/JEOIO9VK/FVYBGOLJEOIO9VK.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&height=300""Clamping Blocks""https://cdn.instructables.com/FG1/7J91/JEOIO9VP/FG17J91JEOIO9VP.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&height=300""Clamping Blocks""https://cdn.instructables.com/FTS/2LWG/JEOIO5HC/FTS2LWGJEOIO5HC.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&height=300""Clamping Blocks""https://cdn.instructables.com/FLL/4RX3/JEOIO5HE/FLL4RX3JEOIO5HE.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&height=300""Clamping Blocks""https://cdn.instructables.com/FCA/YLU2/JEOIO5HF/FCAYLU2JEOIO5HF.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&height=300""Clamping Blocks""https://cdn.instructables.com/FMM/CF1Z/JEOIO5HG/FMMCF1ZJEOIO5HG.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&height=300""step-body"" and 1/2"", the width of these layers will also be 2"" plywood, ripped to a width of 3"" of grab on the underside of the table, which is enough and also avoids any collisions with the stand or any bolts.
Note: I left the lengths long, so I could cut them down to size and not come up short.

Glue up was simple - spread the glue, stack the parts, flush the long back edge up, pop in a few brad nails to keep the parts from sliding, and then add clamps. After a few minutes, I cleaned up the glue squeeze out.
Note: I made sure to position the brads outside of future cutting paths.
Once the glue was cured, I trimmed off the ends and cut two finished blocks to a length of 6"" in from all three edges, as well as the overall center. The outside holes are drilled to 3/4"" wide plywood layers. These will be pockets for the alignment pegs. The center location on the bottom of the block is drilled with a 7/8"" bit.

I installed the T-nuts with a hammer and a socket ... because I have no respect for sockets.

Step 5: Gussets

To connect the face and base, and hopefully keep them in a perfect 90 degree alignment for eternity, I''t bind against the blade and explode and/or kick up into my face.

I also thought it would be nice if the handles had a little more visual interest than the mass of lightly colored plywood of the fence. A few seconds later, I remembered the dwindling supply of pallet padauk, which I have been using for accents within multiple projects. It''t necessary, but I like the look and prefer having metal tighten against wood instead of wood to wood.
