About: Retired Boat builder,CNC programmer,Process Engineer

Hi If you viewed my Instructables on how to improve a crappy table saw you might want to further improve it by adding a removable router table. if you need any further information please check out the youtube video at the end of this sort intro.

Step 1: The Router Table Storage and Underside of Table

Parts required for the build assuming that you have built the side table so far.

2 tongue and grooved boards I used oak flooring


3 hardwood strips

NVR Switch with plug my is UK spec


Jig saw

power drill screw driver

I'm omitting the router lift if you need instructions for your build please look up Steve Ramsey youtube video.the only difference was that he used a round router and my was a plunge router that i butchered to fit

Step 2: Router Table Top Side

I glued the 2 boards together and routered a 10 mm rebate to the top after cutting the hole out with a jigsaw I used 10 mm nylon for the router lift top but and I re-enforced it with hardwood strips make sure that the strips are thin enough for the table to slide on past the table supports.

The router table slides on in the grooves

Step 3: The Router Lift

Step 4: Fence and Extraction

I used the fence and switch of my old metal router table, I don't use the router table that much but I'd like a £ for every time i moved it.

the top now sit permanently under my saw and the router lift lives under the Band saw stand,
