Making a Router Table from some scraps of off-cuts

Router Table

There were days when you would get a router table online easily for as low as £25. It was a complete success for the customers.

We tried searching for what are the best router tables online and to our surprise, we found that none of them was large enough. That’s why we thought to build a router table from scratch.

In this article, we are going to talk about how to build a router table from a scrap of offcuts.

Let’s jump right in…

First, you need to cut an 18mm play and mark it so that you get at least a 500 mm from the cutting head.

A notable thing that is present in a router table is that it has M7 sized holes in the bench. Thus it is usually easy to search for coach bolts that fit the 18mm piece and 40mm worktop.

Now as soon as the center hole got drilled, the router was ready to be placed.

First, we fix the router to the board and after that fix the board to the workbench.

Now there’s one thing that I need to make here:

This is not the safest way to use a router as there is neither any guard not any fence, feather board or any stuff like that. A piece of wood is present that runs parallel to the bench edge.

Now in order to create 3mm MDF sheets, cut it with the exposed cutting head, rotate through 90 degrees and repeatingsheets

During our testing, we found that even if you feed the wood at fast speed, slow speeds, none of that will make a difference.

Fortunately enough the router table gives dust while cutting wood. But it will get cleared by a piece of sandpaper without any issues.

4 years. 4 continents. 38 countries. 50,000km.
 A Dream to set up a hostel with a difference.

The Podstel concept was created almost 4 years ago when Daniel and Sam decided to embark on an epic world adventure with a big dream to open a hostel with a difference at the end of their trip.


Their journey started in 2012 when they booked a one-way ticket to Australia. A couple of weeks later, they found themselves in the outback looking for backpacker work to fund their travels. For the next 12 month’s they grinded out long hours in the intense heat shovelling grain, making wine, planting vegetables, washing trucks and doing whatever work they could to fund their world adventure.

After a successful year saving and planning in the outback, including an inspirational hostel trip down the East coast, Podstel was born.

Read our Story of Podstel Life from here.

Daniel and Sam spent the next 3 years travelling across 38 countries on 4 continents. They lived incredibly resourcefully, spending on average €5 a day, hitchhiking their way across Asia, Europe, and North America while visiting hostels, and building the Podstel concept from the road.

Some of their memorable journeys include: trekking to 5400m in the Himalayas, motorbiking 3,000km’s across Vietnam, hitchhiking 7,000km across Europe and 20,000km’s across Canada and America.

Throughout their journey their passion for travel and hospitality blossomed and they became determined to understand what made a great hostel.

They worked at and stayed in hundreds of hostels, filled dozens of notepads with ideas and feedback from 1000s of backpackers, developed a compelling vision and ideology, and inspired many people they met to travel by sharing their story and building a tight-knitted community around Podstel.

After many transformative and memorable experiences, they have secured €100,000 in investment and are now based in Leipzig, Germany planning their next steps and searching for partners and a building/location for the first Podstel.

A Story from Daniel Beaumont, Founder of Podstel

“Podstel – A shoestring hostel project started by a traveller as he roams the world.”

I’m writing this passage after 1-½ years on the road. In that time I’ve travelled 24 countries across 4 continents. From motorbiking Vietnam, working in outback Australia, trekking the Himalayas, hitchhiking Northern Thailand, cycling Tasmania and road tripping New Zealand, I quickly learnt that…

Life is all about experiencing as much of this beautiful world as possible with the people that count. Experiences and great memories are the only things that remain with us – absolutely – until the day we die.

Upon graduating, I was confused. I knew I didn’t want to follow society’s expectations and trap myself in routine by seeking a safe corporate job. In the spur of the moment, I grabbed my backpack and booked a one-way flight to Australia.

It took the first 6 months of life changing experiences to put two and two together and transform my newfound passion of travel into a business venture.

Read from here How I Spread my PodStel through Social Media

On 30th April 2013, I was sat in my hostel bed ready to embark on a crazy adventure across South East Asia. Then it hit me – my previous six months in Australia had been surreal. I had met so many weird and wonderful people that exhibited new dimensions and layers I’d never witnessed before. At that moment, I decided that this would be my life work, and subsequently, Podstel was born.

Since that day I’ve stayed at over 300+ hostels/hotels, not to mention the car parks, street benches, couches, buses, parks, tents, gardens, sheep sheering sheds, beaches and lots and lots of  hard floors.

I’ve written countless journals, brainstormed intensely and made note after note on every hostel I’ve visited. I’ve written observations on what I loved, what I disliked and what could be improved. I’ve spent many days daydreaming and visioning what a Podstel Hostel would look like and how it would feel.

I asked people what they thought about my ideas and what they would want to see in a Podstel Hostel. More and more people were willing to share their ideas with me, and each idea took Podstel one step closer to reality. It seemed only natural that Podstel should continue to grow through the collaboration of people’s idea; since these are the very people that would come to use Podstel in the future.

Which takes us to this point on Podstel’s exciting journey… From May 2014 I’m taking Podstel to Northern America to spread the world, gather inspiration, ideas, and sponsorship; whilst I hitchhike, CouchSurf and volunteer my way across Canada and the USA seeking great experiences. I’m going to be filming and documenting everything. You can follow the journey by keeping an eye on Podstel’s PodBlog.
