Rockler Trim Router Table

Rockler Trim Router Table Preview

Rockler Woodworking has some innovative features, but this is one we hadn’t even heard of before – a Trim Router Table. Rockler seems to have outdone itself. It merged the convenience of a compact router, with the stability of a mini-sized router table. Pre-drilled holes on the backside let you attach a clamping strip. This lets the Rockler Trim Router Table clamp onto any horizontal surface.

In this way you can hitch up the Rockler Trim Router Table to a bench or even the tailgate of a pickup truck. To facilitate the attachment of common trim routers, the table comes with a 1/4″ thick acrylic base pre-drilled to provide a stable connection to the table. Rockler pre-drilled the adjustable fence to accept the Router Table Dust Port (21528) which is sold separately.

Rockler Trim Router Table Features

As you might expect, the Router Trim Table is adept at allowing for multi-purpose use. For example, you can detach the router in seconds from the table. This lets you use it in a standalone fashion and handheld use. Here, the acrylic base serves as a wide, level base. Then, in just a few seconds, you can mount your compact router back onto the Trim Router Table.

Using the table, jobs like routing round overs, chamfers, and small dadoes are a cakewalk. The compact Trim Router Table is made of vinyl-wrapped 3/4″ MDF (medium density fiberboard) and measures just 11-1/2″ wide x 15-1/2″ deep. You really can place it just about anywhere.

The Rockler Trim Router Table (43550) retails for $89.99. It is available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler’s independent resellers,, or in the Rockler catalog.
