The Woodpecker router table combines a sturdy steel base, a medium-density fiberboard (MDF) top covered with plastic laminate, and a versatile fence to create a top-quality system. It compares favorably with the Hart Design table, which was listed as the best value in a recent review of router tables (Fine Woodworking #181, pp. 36-41). The leg set is easy to assemble and can be adjusted for table heights ranging from 36 in. to 42 in. The top, which tested very flat, comes in a variety of sizes and is 1-5/16 in. thick. The router fence is mounted in two T-tracks that extend from the back of the table to near the centerline of the router opening. Scales attached to these T-tracks allow easy placement of the fence during initial setup or when you have to return the fence to a previous setup. For dust collection, there is a 2-1/4-in. dust port on the fence.
