Should have read the reviews
I download these "plans", if you want to call them that. What you get with these "plans" is a magazine article. I should have just downloaded the magazine instead, at least then I would have also gotten the router table fence "plans". Not to say that you can't build from this article, but they ARE NOT PLANS! Not what I thought I was going to get. I wish I would have read some of the other reviews.
Router Table Plan
I am a novice woodworker building my first router table. These plans were easy to follow. They were complete, with no gaps leaving you wondering how important tasks were to be performed.
Less than I'd expect for the $.
The plans are ok. When building something from a magazine, I expect to have to figure out some dimensions and noodle through some design decisions. However, if I'm buying a plan, I expect a well dimensioned plan that leaves nothing to chance. This is just a reprint of the magazine article. For that, I could have just bought a reprint of the issue and saved a few bucks. The articles goes to some length to discuss 23/32" plywood, but then uses 3/4" in the drawing anyway - an annoying lack of consistancy.
A Great router cabinet and table
These plans are great. There are detailed sections on Joinery for hardwood plywood and Perfect, simple drawer joinery which are very helpful. There are many photos and helpful hints all the through. I have enjoyed building this cabinet and am enjoying using it very much.
I use this in a small production shop. It's the most complete table I've found. I used a commercially made top and fence to put it to use right away. The cabinet is not only functional, it just flat looks good in the shop. It came together so nicely, I finally spoiled myself with a good lift.
After reviewing, I did not use the plan to build my table.
