Woodhaven - Router Table 8244K
Woodhaven’s router cabinet is a paragon of versatility.
The author evaluated 13 router tables for the sturdiness of their tables and fences, for dust collection, and for ease of operation and setup. A good router table is flat and has a stout base and a fence able to support jigs and hold-downs.
Woodhaven’s router cabinet is a paragon of versatility. The two stacks of drawers that flank the centered router cabinet provide great storage for bits, wrenches, and the myriad pieces related to router operation. The lower divided cabinet offers great router storage and helps make the cabinet very sturdy. The easy-to-operate and versatile fence (three rows of T-tracks on the aluminum-back fence) and a phenolic top add up to a great package that gets the author’s vote for best cabinet-style router table.
The small cupboard housing the router motor aid in dust collection without wasting storage space. Base parts come precut and are accurate, but it takes several hours to glue and fasten together all the drawers and cabinet pieces, hang the doors, and install the hardware and top.
