A router table top is a requirement for a woodworking shop

It’s said, when you plant your work piece on the router table, it’s a cut of wood, and when you detach it from there, it’s a cabinet. A Bosch or Bench dog router table can be a pro’s tool for any wood worker.

A router table can be a handy magic wand to render top notch furniture or crafts with wood.
The services a router table renders are too many to be listed here. But some are worth mentioning:
– Allows variable profiles for edges
– Can follow templates
– Groove and dado cutting
– Extremely useful for cutting precious joinery
– Doors building (raised panel)
– Wood rounding
– Comes in lots of different sizes like bench top.
– Varied types of router bits are cheap
– Table for routers can be easily made, but table saws can’t be.
– Many Additions are usable with routers to make numberless projects easier.

Router bits are magic. You don’t need to own 100 individual cutting or slotting instruments in your shop. If you have a simple Bosch or a Bench Dog router, a router table and own a dozen router bits, that’s enough to produce 50 different types of cuts by just changing the router bits. Routers can be used for many tasks like:

Biscuit joinery
Face framing bits
Box joints
Laminate trimming
Lock mitres for strong joints
Round overs
Dovetail joinery
Mullion cut
and much, much more

Routering on a table is desirable for the convenience of use, and it helps you keep your work area or workplace clean and composed. When the workplace is organized it will make your job a satisfying one and boost your proficiency as well.
So how do router tables keeps everything clean? Simply, by employing dust collectors. I use a dry-vac with my table. They are great for removing saw dust as the router cuts.

Talking about my personal router table and bits, I keep everything organized and at the right place, next to my hands with a router table cabinet with multiple drawers. Other wise it would have been very difficult to keep all those Allen wrenches, bits, Collet wrenches and speed controls in one places. You too, can have things grouped and ready for use, if you keep everything stored using a under table cabinet.

Search the net will help you find out what’s available for your router table needs. Do some study, learn about the products and pick the right one for your tasks. To name a few, Bosch router tables and Bench Dog Router tables are among the best quality tables available in the market today.
