Space-Saving Router Table

I never thought I'd have room for a router table. After a couple years of messing around with different designs I came up with this compact table that sets up and knocks down in seconds and can be stored almost anywhere. You can clamp it to the edge of a workbench or across a pair of sawhorses. It's also easy to make, because instead of routing out the opening, it's simply sawn out.

Glue the bottom piece of 1/4-in. hardboard to the plywood core. Then use your router's base plate to trace the hole for the base. Cut the hole with a jigsaw and glue on the top piece of 1 /4-in. hardboard. Add the plastic laminate to complete the "sandwich." Use the router base to locate the screw holes. Drill these holes and countersink them from the top. Add a 1x2 cleat to the bottom of the table about 3 in. from the back edge. The cleat helps brace the table against your bench. Finish off the top with a little paste wax.
