Router Tables

Are you a craftsman or woodworker who often uses power tools, such as planers and routers? If so, a router table could be a useful addition to your workshop.

Router tables make complex jobs much simpler. They allow you to securely fix your router upside down – keeping both of your hands free to run the wood over the router, rather than running the tool over the workpiece. Not only does this give you more control and enable you to work more efficiently, it’s also easier and safer.

A router table allows you to use your router in ways which would be difficult or impossible with a handheld tool. For example:

  • Working with small, narrow or long materials
  • Routing with large diameter router cutters
  • Routing the same cut multiple times
  • Making raised panel doors
  • Routing stopped cuts

Though it’s great to have a choice when purchasing a router table, too many options can make it challenging. From benchtop router tables to floor standing models and DIY possibilities, how do you know which is best for your workshop? Allow us to help…

Choosing a Router Table

There are two main types: free-standing and benchtop.

Free-standing/floor standing router tables are usually the largest of the two and are typically used as standalone tables. These often have removable legs so they can be used as benchtop tables too.

Benchtop tables, on the other hand, are smaller and lighter which means they can be moved around your workshop with ease. Designed to be used on top of a sturdy workbench, benchtop router tables tend to come with brackets so they can be secured to a tabletop – minimising movement whilst you’re working.

We understand that selecting a router table is no easy task. Our best advice? Take the time to assess the different options and look closely at the features, design and build quality to ensure you end up with the right one for your needs.

If you’re new to the trade or a weekend craftsman, having a router table lined up before you start is sure to save you time and frustration. Perhaps keep an eye out for a DIY router table – one that’s stationary and easy to operate. Alternatively, if you’re a carpenter or a full-time handyman, a portable table or floor standing router table is desirable.
