« Part 2: Frame for Router Box Part 3 of Router Table & Unit series Part 4: Drawer Sliders »

So I’m starting to see the light att he end of the tunnel!!!!

I’ve completed the MDF box that’s going to contain the router !!! Also considering putting a plastic see through door on it !!

And if installed the drawer supports with MORE POCKET SCREWS lol,next I have to buy the under drawer runners and thrm its on to build the drawers .. A lot more research on the drawers and I’m not sure wether I need to build a router lift buying my opinion that’s a luxury not necessity !!!!!

nice going Ed! Does the MDF add a lot of weight to it?

Just some advice. MDF is not as stable as plywood when subjected to moisture\humidity so use it wisely.

I would not recommend it for a work surface for your table. The router box is fine since its performance is not critical.

Just keep it in mind when it comes time to do the top.

It didn’t add as much as I first thought Rhybeka, I’m considering putting lockable castors on it…

I guess I’ll use plywood.. What about melamine chipboard

I recommend using two 3/4” plywood for your top with a good smooth top.
