Shop-Made Micro-Adjustable Router Table Fence

By: Phil Huber
Most router table fences can be fickle to adjust with a lot of back and forth until you get it tuned in, but Phil Huber designed this fence for his compact router table that can micro-adjust to the precise position and even includes dust collection.

Get the step-by-step plans for this Micro-Adjust Router Table Fence and Compact Router Table from WoodsmithPlans.com.


Here’s how the fence works. Knobs and bolts in the base slide in T-tracks in the router tabletop. To provide fine control for adjustments, the fence face pivots on the outfeed side and is controlled by a studded knob. Altogether, you have about 1" of adjustment.


The continuous laminate fence face accommodates most bits. In back, a dust port tames the mess. The fence is mostly made from plywood and the footprint is minimized to work with a small router table. Before you dive into the construction, I want to mention that the dimensions you’ll see are to make this fence fit our Compact Router Table, I hope you can see past those numbers and apply the design to whatever type of router table you have.
