    Horizontal Router Table

    What do you think of them vs. a vertical.

    I made this one a few years ago, works great and was cheap to build. There are many operations that are easier and in my opinion safer to make on a vertical table such as mortising and such.

    If at first you don't succeed, look in the trash for the instructions.

    I had a special horizontal table made several years ago to use with longer router bits and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I have one of the baby stockfeeders mounted on the table and use it for a lot of molding work.

    In my opinion, a horizontal table is in addition to a regular router table as opposed to a replacement for a normal router table.

    I agree with Burt...horizontal is nice, but it's more of a specialty setup.

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...
