My first "woodworking" tool purchase about 18 months ago was a Bosch RA1181 bench top router table and a Bosch 1617 router. While I enjoy the bench top router table, at times I find myself not using it as often as I like because it is stored under a workbench. So far I have three options I'm considering and I would like feedback on.
- Build a stand with drawers that would make it functionally a free standing router table, but with the bench top table permanently mounted to a stand.
- Scavenge pieces of the bench top table to make a full size table (mounting plate, fence & accessories, maybe the top)
- Start fresh and build a full size table.
