« Part 4: Cabinet Base & Shelf Part 5 of Router Cabinet Redo series Part 6: Securing Front Stretcher »

So I started off by making the 2 partition walls which will achieve the cavity needed to fit the router into and simultaneously create the other two cavitys that will fit my 3 drawers on the left and the door on the right to store all the cords .

Dividers:

The dividers like most other components in this build is 3/4” plywood with a solid oak edge. Again I cut the ply to size and installed the oak using glue and pocket holes. I also did the drawer runners now so it’s easier to get at the screws and things easier, this was one of the main reasons I’m doing this project in a modular way, although when it’s finally built it will not be modular but how it all comes together and maybe comes part some day ( if I ever move I can disassemble it easier). I also added some pocket holes at the back of each piece to screw into the cabinet back keeping it square.

Drawers Slides:

I saw this technique on tv so this guy used a piece of plywood ( the height of the piece determined where the slid was positioned ) I sat the slide on the edge of the ply and 3/4” in from the front as I am recessing the drawers trying to keep it flush to the outside, used my self centering bit and to predrill the holes and screw the runner into position , this was the easy bit because it was the side of the case the other divider was a free standing piece and it was sitting in a 1/4” deep dado which played with your measurement to the other side, here is what I did !!!

I took the same jig I used to position the left side drawer slide moved it over to the right side divider and struck a line and moved it my bench where I used my self entering but again to predrill and secured the drawer slide..

The next step was to get the plywood jig down to the next height and repeat the process

Plywood Top : Used to eventually screw the cabinet into my router table from the underneath

I just basically cut a piece of 3/4” plywood to my specific dimensions and I will see it by screwing from the outside panel, this creates a plate for me to screw up into the router table as you can see

Next : Pksving the cross stretcher and securing all the cabinet pieces in place
