Added a bit shelf and a drawer to the table, both out of Maple. The shelf is 1” thick laminated from narrow strips basically cutting board style with breadboard ends.
I used a little spray adhesive and some graph paper as a drilling guide – despite that I did manage to drill 2 holes off location…......
The template holder just sits on the bottom and you can slide it out a bit to grab what you need.
The drawer box is painted MDF
Under the dust box are three 1/4-20 bolts for wrapping up the cord, which is annoying when it’s colied up in the dust box…I am seriously considering just cutting the cord shorter, making a pigtail, since the router shouldn’t be coming out of the table,
For now, the bottom part will stay open – don’t really need more drawers and such, don’t really like building stuff without a purpose. Might use the space for lumber storage or maybe store some lesser used bench tools…........
So I think I will call it good for now….thanks for all the comments on the table – it was a fun project.
