Mounting your router in a router table is the single biggest thing that you can do to increase your skills and routing capabilities.

Simply mounting your router in a router table immediately gives you a massive increase in your routing capabilities allowing you to easily and safely perform tasks that would be difficult,  sometimes impossible and/or dangerous freehand. Straight out of the box, a router table increases the range of jobs you can perform with your router and allows you to easily take on advanced projects such as raised panels or use larger cutters that are too big to control freehand as well as making it easier and safer to do things like putting edge moldings on narrow workpieces. But that’s only the beginning. Everything that you want to accomplish can be made easier and a better end result obtained by investing in the huge range of router table add-ons and accessories. From router lifts to high-end router table fences and from coping sleds to box joint jigs, the range of specialist accessories has never been greater, or more affordable. Results that were previously only available to the professional are now easily achieved by everyone.

One of the reasons for using a router table is to use larger router bits like raised panel cutters, so you need to be looking at a router with

  • A powerful motor that’s up to the job of removing large amounts  of stock – a minimum of 2HP and preferably 3HP
  • Variable speed – the golden rule is, the larger the router bit, the slower the speed, so you need a router that allows you to slow it right down for the largest cutters
  • A 1/2-inch collet – large cutters only come on 1/2-inch shanks, which are stronger, more durable and vibrate less giving you a better cut

And since you’ll be mounting the router upside down under the router table there are a couple of other features that will make life easier:
