Bryan’s Ultimate Router Work Station

Okay, I’ll admit it… I’m an absolute lumber jock! I enjoy watching DIY shows taking place in an old musty workshop. Of these, I’ve been a huge fan of the Yankee Workshop featuring Norm Abrams. A lot of the techniques he’s taught on his show over the years has helped me in my own projects. I’ve always been a big fan of his work on his custom-built router table.

I decided to build my own Ultimate Router Table inspired by Norm’s design.


A Norm Abrams-style Router Table

I love all the storage space and decided to add a center drawer under my router lift for tool storage.

My good friends at Woodpeckers Precision Tools set me up with the perfect lift! Its the Woodpeckers Precision Router Lift V2.

They were kind enough to help add to my purchase with the custom aluminum rings…What can I say, I’ve got a soft spot for shiny red things!

The lift houses my Porter Cable 960. Its plenty of motor for the stuff I shape and is one of the best routers on the market!

Here’s a bunch of photos of the table-build… I’ll caption and organize them as time allows…
