Router Tips - Clamp-On Plywood Router Table for Cutting Smooth Edges

Clamp on plywood router table Woodworker's Journal's Jeff Jacobson's clamp-on router table makes breaking the edges of table legs easy.

Sometimes, the difference between a project that looks nicely completed and one that looks homemade is a smooth or “broken” edge on a table leg or top. You can break an edge with sandpaper, but it is hard to keep the profile consistent. Art director Jeff Jacobson’s shop features a dedicated “router table” with a 1/8" roundover bit chucked into the router. His table is nothing more than a piece of Baltic birch plywood with a router base mounted to it. Two cutouts in the table make room for clamps so he can mount it to a workbench in seconds. (But mostly, he says, “I just leave it set up and ready to run.”) One quick pass over the bit breaks those sharp edges in a jiffy.
