Store-bought router table fences do their job reasonably well. But, despite their strengths, I think many fence designs still come up short — literally Two or three inches of height just doesn't provide enough vertical support for tall work.

Here's where this shop-made fence really shines. It's a full five inches tall — and that extra real estate is a big help if you raise panels vertically or stand workpieces on edge for other milling. The fence's fixed top facing (piece 4) makes it easy to mount featherboards or a guard over the bit. The bottom facings slide open 3MM, which will accommodate most bits, even large horizontal panel raisers.

At 32" long, my fence will fit any standard-sized router table. Just clamp it in place, or drill holes or cut slots through the base to match your table's current fence-bolt spacing.
