    A router table is one of the most useful and versatile additions you can make to your shop. With the router mounted securely in a table, both of your hands are free for maximum workpiece control during the cut. That extra control makes some routing operations much easier – routing grooves or edge profiles, for example.

    A router table is unlike most other machines in a wood shop because you can customize it just the way you want it. Rockler gives you the most innovative options to create the perfect router table for your shop. There are different kinds of tables, bases, lifts and other router table accessories.
