"4-Router Table" Reduces Prep Time
Norm Dufresne does a lot of wood working so he doesnít like to spend a lot of time changing router bits and adjusting the depth. Thatís why he put together a portable router table with 4 routers set up with different bits at the right depth for the most common cuts he makes.
  He mounted 4 routers to plywood with 1 1/4-in. holes that line up with holes drilled in the 3/16-in. steel plate work area.
  ďI use steel because I have a dust pickup that attaches with magnets to whatever router bit Iím using,Ē Dufresne says.
  He can change bits and adjust heights with the routers in place and can move the unit wherever he needs it. There is plenty of room between the routers for him to maneuver long pieces of wood.
  Dufresne says he doesnít have a pattern to sell, but he will give more detailed information to anyone interested in making a router table.
