How to build a router table

I would like to build a router table, I have seen a few, the affordable ones are not very sturdy and the nice ones are too expensive, does anybody have one that they have had good luck with and would like to share your plans.

Hello Glockman and Welcome to the community!


I also work for the Home Depot, and I'm located in the Chicagoland area. I've been a woodworker most of my life, and having a Router Table can such a useful tool.


The layout & design of a tool can be a personal thing, so I have a couple links to offer you, the first one is minimalist approach to building a Router Table, it's actually called "Minimalist Router Table" , the second link  is to a website that has19 different plans for you to choose & build, hopefully one of them will interest you.


Please send pictures of your project, and the steps it took to completion, I'm looking forward to seeing it in use. Good Luck!
