This is my first instuctable, and in it I will show you how to make a Router lift for your router table out of recycled hardware.
This is based on 3 closet sleds and rails, that are in tension.
Another thing, the design is very forgiving of small manufacturing errors
I´m also submitting it for the makebot contest, so if you like it, please vote!
Thank you for reading
You will notice that I don´t include a lot of measurements, this is due to the fact that it´s unlikely that you will find the exact same closet rails that I used (there really old).
Just follow along, using the stuff you have at hand and at the end of the day you to will have a recycled router lift (or a vertical lift for any other project you have)
Step 1: Finding the closet rails.
These are the rails out of our old closet door.
