Hitachi GP10DL Micro Grinder Router Table (Part 1)

Router Table Framework (in progress)

Hitachi GP10DL Micro Grinder Router Table – Can be made quickly with a few extra pieces of wood, small sheet of plexiglass.

If you have it handy, I would recommend using 1/2″ or 3/4″ MDF board – I on the other hand combined 2×4’s, Plywood and some spare Poplar.

Tools you need

  • Hitachi GP10DL Micro Grinder
  • Spare Wood
  • 11″x14″ plexiglass sheet
  • Various wood screws and drill bits
  • Cordless/corded Drill
  • 2″-4″ Clamps
  • Mitre Saw or Jig Saw
  • Sanding Spools (use in GP10DL)/
  • Pencil
  • Measuring tape

Construction Notes

Design utilizes the GP10DL standing design. Wood support(s) and structure designed around motor side ventilation slots to prevent overheating. Designed for temporary use, back wall open to allow air flow and easy cleanup from dust/debris. Lastly, battery/base supported with 2×4’s cut at slight angles to allow for speed dial access.

Total Cost: $6 for none-glare plexiglass 11″x14″ sheet plus spare wood/screws from past projects.

Below is the basic framework.

70% of the work including frame, sanded back piece and top support beams for clamping guides during work. Obviously top is missing at this stage.

Basic Steps:

Preplan – Determine Total working area. This will give you final measurements for base dimensions and depth of the side walls. My unit will result in a 11″x14″ top surface (I counterbalanced the unit based on where I will have a guide placed and pressure applied when sanding/routing).
