I know Escape has had requests for other woods, and mostly dark woods too. Personally, I would much prefer a lighter wood in the trailer myself, like maple. I do not mind the oak though. Though not used a lot in cabinetry any more, it is still used a lot in furniture. What I like to do is to mix woods, like having walnut accents with maple, like in this router table I built a couple years ago.



As I have mentioned here before, the issue for Escape is having then to have double the product on hand, and in order to make it feasible, they would have to be certain it would get lots of use.

Obviously, I too would be a fan of another wood selection, though I would still be happy with oak.

What a sweet router table! Can I have one? or maybe the plans so I can copy it?

Not sure I have the plans anymore. I had adapted them from a table built by Norm Abrams.

Here is a link to more photos, if anyone is interested.

Two or three more inches of headroom would be the only thing that would make me consider a new trailer.
