A few more pics taken during building. Alas, not a complete story, at a certain point I was far too busy with timber, glue, tools and stuff to take anymore pictures.

 

At the beginning...

Body sawn out with the crappy yellow bandsaw from the first pic

With some holes in it

These holes will make a control cavity at some point

OMG That is why I hate router tables...gives me nightmares...I cannot condone that as it is too dangerous!

Sorry Ed had to remove offending pics in case any body else tries that.

Router tables are dangerous enough but...

No Guard!

It's a danger machine !

Please don't do this folks....

Hi Mark! Sorry you took offense to my router table...   

I do agree with you. They are dangerous. But so is a plunge router. I have an enormous respect for routers and they are not to be taken lightly. When I use the router table I ALWAYS keep my hands well clear from the cutter. I use handles and always keep in mind that the cutter spins in the opposite direction. 

I guess you do have a point, it's your forum and you clearly feel you've got a responsability towards the participants and that is only to be applauded. If I choose to use the table I will do so, but at my own risk. So, point taken...... Still friends?  ?

Still friends 🙂

I guess in my line of work I've met a LOT of older woodworkers without the full array digits...I'm sure you understand that I will have to at least try to maintain a zero tolerance policy on safe practices!

It is super important to me because I also play guitar - and I would really hate to be responsible for someone else having a mishap.

I am sure a router table used correctly can be perfectly safe but notice I don't have one in my workshop.

I like handheld routers - mainly for this reason: Both your hands are always ABOVE the cutter (unless you are doing something very stupid)

Of course - at home there is nothing I can do to stop you doing whatever you want but don't come running to me when you chop your legs off...!

Sorry to be a PITA
