I started with a piece of 1-3/8" Baltic Birch plywood scrap a friend gave me. The overall size was right but the ends were rounded. I thought this might make an alright router table top. The price was right, I couldn't let him turn it into firewood! So I got busy, about six months of busy. My first project using the router table was the rockler plan for the porch glider. I made plastic patterns for all the shaped pieces. And used my rockler flush trim bit to shape all the pieces. This was great, creating identical pcs. on a router. I only wish I had spent the money on a router plate. The 1/4" plastic is o.k. but it does flex some. My first place to shop for tools or hardware is Rockler!
