Routers are versatile tools, capable of cutting profiles, joinery and doing other useful tasks. While a hand-held router is useful, mounting it under a table makes it even more useful. But, even with these two options, there are sometimes you may need the bit held a third way – horizontally.
That’s why woodworker Ron Fox has designed this horizontal router table. Using simple MDF and commonly found hardware, you can build this table to get your router into a horizontal position. From there, your router can be used to cut mortises or use a vertical panel raising bit with the wood pressed firmly against a table.
