I don't do as much woodworking in my little basement shop as I to but today I needed to make a small piece of window trim . Years ago I made this bench top router table to be able to use the router the standard or horizontally  just by changing where I clamp it to the bench  .The mounting holes work on either my 1/4" Craftsman or this DeWalt 1/2" , which is what I used today .

Real neat idea.  I like the flip over idea.  Never thought of that when I built my table a year ago.  I haven't used a router for trim pieces except for rounding an edge, etc.  I use the shaper on the Shopsmith or the molding head on the table saw.

I am a woodworker by trade. What you made there is not a tool an average person slaps together. Very nice.

Great idea very versatile. The trim looks good, nice job. I have worn my bench top out & have been wanting to make a new one.

Dang that's nice ! I am in the process of adding a router table to my Ridgid Contractors 10" table saw. I can see a couple of ideas from yours that I can use in mine. Thanks.  Nice trim also !                                                                                                                                                                                       Roger
