Custom Router Table



Made by Mohammed Salavatipour

The base of his router table is mainly Baltic birch plywood with solid walnut edging, while the top consists of two layers of MDF with a lami­nate top surface. The router table moves on four casters, and it has four leveling feet that can be lowered when the unit is in use. Mohammad wired it so he could easily turn it off with his leg at the end of a cut. The storage drawers keep accessories, bits, and tools close by, making time in the shop more productive.
