Learn how to build a simple router table using a sheet of scrap plywood or MDF, a few screws, and a single piece of hardwood. And while most beginner woodworkers don’t have access to a router table, they can easily build a bare-bones model in mere minutes.
Now grab a scrap piece of plywood or (in this case) MDF and drill a clearance hole large enough for the router bit you intend to use, to pass through. Use an awl (or in this case) a brad and a hammer to mark the three screw holes that attach the base to the router. Next, screw the plywood or MDF to the router and clamp the entire unit firmly to the corner or end of a work table. A bare-bones router table like this is best-used for smaller jobs like routing dadoes, rabbets (as seen here), and simple edge profiles.


The dimensions chosen for this versatile, easy to build router table are 32 inches wide and 24 inches deep. With it, you can run edge profiles like ogees and roundovers, cut joinery like rabbets and dadoes, you can even turn it upside down and mount it to a table. I cut out a semi-circle in this case, so that my fence wraps slightly around the router bit. Instead, I am buying for furniture, just recently I got a dining table from a Foster City furniture shop.
This router plate kit has some features such as rigidity, ease of adapting and installing a router to, and can be removed from beneath the table.
After following this tutorial including the video below, you will have a better understanding of routers.


The router insert is offset towards the front of the table since this is where most routing is performed. The design of the router table also provides for use of the rear of the table when a larger table surface is required. The crosscut sled allows you to safely rout at right angles to the table.To eliminate table sag, the router table top is a torsion box with glued and screwed internal supports or webbing.
