Quick & Easy Router Table

Quick & Easy Router Table

Building the basic router table on page 18 of ShopNotes No. 85 doesn't require much hardware. I picked up a piano hinge at a local hardware store, along with the carriage bolts, locknut, and washers. If you have trouble locating knobs, Rockler carries 5/16" T-knobs (71514).

Adding the stand. If you decide to build the router table stand with shelves, the only other hardware you'll need is a set of shelf pin supports. The twelve pins (22773) I used came from Rockler.

For the router table stand with the door and drawers, you'll only need four shelf pins, a pair of Rockler spring hinges (28845), and a few screws for the drawer runners.
