Bill Hylton weighs his router table options Even router expert Bill Hylton has to weigh his options when considering what router table he wants in his shop.

Router tables have become standard fare in most woodworkers’ shops. If you’re thinking of buying one, or about upgrading your current unit, it is a good idea to create a list of features that are most important to you. Here are some considerations to get you started:

• Composition of the tabletop

• Solid table or with insert plate

• Router lift

• Above the table adjustment

• Open stand or cabinet

• One-piece or split fence

• Dust collection (4" or 2-1⁄2")

• Casters

• Benchtop or full-size

• Miter slot

• T-slot hold-downs
