A full-sized, permanent router table setup might be a great solution — if you have the space. But if you only use a router table occasionally, or you need a mobile solution, this could be the answer.
This benchtop tool features all the accuracy and stability you’d expect from a full-size router table. And when it’s time to store the table or take it to a job site, just remove the router, fold up the table, and it’s ready to go. This quick transformation is possible due to a unique design and readily available hardware.
The sides of the table are hinged to fold like a book. The front and back are then fastened in place with threaded knobs. Finally, the fence detaches from the top to become the handle for transporting and storing the table.
