My version of Norm's router table.
Here's a few shots of the top going together. It is banded with maple.
Here's the top slab with the fence parts.
Next the finished top (top and bottom).
Here's a few pics of the carcase glue ups. I built it with maple ply.
Some shots of the completed top and fence (front and back), plus close-ups of the dust collection for the fence and main box.
I decided to cut an opening for the switch rather than surface mounting it.
I also put it on a mobile base inspired by pics I had seen on the net somewhere. It's really not that big of a deal, just a Rockler caster and a couple wheels in a plywood frame.
For some odd reason Norm's design only calls for 18" drawers in the 24" cabinet. That didn't make any sense to me, so I made mine 22" with full extension slides to match.
Here are bunch of it completed. I used maple for the face frame and finished it with wipe-on satin poly.
TOP = 36" wide x 26" deep x 1½" thick
CABINET = 32" wide x 24" deep x 35" high
WORKING SURFACE = 37¼" from the floor (wheels added the ¾")
FENCE = 8" high
TOTAL HEIGHT = 45¼"
