Olly,
This picture is a classic...I have been known to bring timber in the house to dry but not quite like this. You have made great progress today.
What did you decide to do about the corner joints?
Also, any chance of some more pics of your router table
 
Thanks
Richard

Thanks, you guys.
 
Richard, I can just about swing the door closed without hitting the long stack! I had to put up with a strong smell of resin for a few days though. Not something I'm used to, normally working with hardwoods at home. It didn't help the cold I had at the time either!

I was gonna forget about it all and just biscuit joint the corners but, I've decided to go with the joint which I think you liked, actually. It should be a piece of cake with the new router table!

Here's a shot of the router table, since you asked (this is the best one I have to-hand, at the moment):

 
 
It's made from 18mm moisture resistant MDF. The top has been laminated with Formica on both sides and the rest of it is painted white to suit. It's only a benchtop model, which means I can store it away under the mitre saw... Saying that, it does weight quite a bit! But, it really keeps the noise (and dust) down, unlike the Bosch table I had before, which was 'open' underneath. The NVR switch was about £15 from Charnwood.net and the aluminium plate from Tilgear, about £30?

I think it will be strong enough however you join the corners as you have so much long grain to work with. If all else fails...get the drill out and a box of spax.
your router table is very impressive, I love the long feather board. Thats something i've been meaning to make for my bandsaw. I think I would find a good router table very usefull, I just cant bring myself to bring one in the workshop....yet. Saying that, with the new planner thicknesser on its way i think i'm finaly coming around to this hole machine thing.
Thanks for the picture.
Richard
