Here is my first attempt at building a router table for my TS3612.
The top is two pieces of 1/2" MDF glued and screwed with laminate on top and 3/4" red oak edging. The router plate and fence pieces are from a Ryobi accessory kit for their BT3xxx series. I found the entire accessory kit at a salvage store for $10
The miter track is from Incra and the router fence attaches to my TS3612 fence with a MDF auxillary fence and block.
A view from the underside ... I had to relieve an area for the bolts on the underside of the table in order to attach it to the saw top. Currently it is not attached to the rails, just the top.
I am sure I will make changes as I use it but for a first attempt I am pleased.
Very nice lookin' Alan :D
Congrats to you - I'm sure you'll really enjoy it.Yep - you'll likely find something you desire to modify with time - we all do. Gotta keep them vendors in business ya know.
Let us know after you've abused it by getting real nice n' dusty how you like.
Again - nice job!!!!
Real nice job. You should be proud.
Looks like you did a sweet job
Nice job on the router table, thanks for the details and the photos. The fence looks really versatile and useful (plenty of adjustable clearance for large bits, etc). Nice catch on the router plate too.
You wouldn't happen to have any more detailed pics of the fence would you? I need to add a router fence like this & will have it attach to table saw fence as well.
Looks like you attached it to the T-slots on the TS fence?
Here are some more shots that hopefully show the detail you are looking for.
Yes, the fence attaches to the TS fence t-slots. Here is a view from the back...
I made what I am labeling the "T-Track Block" from three pieces of 1/2" MDF glued and screwed together. I did this to provide clearance for the Ryobi fence faces and brackets and also to accomodate the Rockler t-track. By mounting the Ryobi pieces to that block I can adjust them as needed. I also wanted it to be somewhat modular so that as I modify the "design" I can reuse the parts I like ;)
A closer view of the router fence ...
That is exactly what I was looking for.
Alan or others.. Before I really annoy people with my attempts to post pictures in the bed design questions thread can you tell me how you are doing it please
Figured it out ... Thanks

Nice work. I've been scoping that project too.
What did you do with the other wing? If you're looking to dump it, lets talk about a price.
