« Part 2: Router Table Part 3 of INCRA Cabinet series Part 4: Router Table »

It’s been 2 1/2 days of plugging and unplugging, sweating my A** off in the garage, and measuring twice cutting 3 times!! I’m learning though. I must have unassembled reassembled my router table 4 or 5 times today, it’s funny how the thing I’m building is a tool I need to use to build the cabinet!!

Once I had it unassembled I realized I could use it as an out feed table to cut my 5’x5’ birch ply, worked out pretty good.

Still working on the face frame. I’m also trying to figure out how to assemble to box and the drawer slides, I think I need to stain the outside and inside of the box with poly before I assemble the rest.

So far, I am really happy how everything is turning out, it’s taking me a while but well worth it in the end.

I’m going to try and work on it during the week but we’ll see how that turns out coming home from work!! :(

looks ver well built. I like the adjustable metal legs. Do you have a dust collection system for the table top?

Yes, I will be adding a dust collection port to my router box.

you’re surely doin a fine job. I can see you using this as an outfeed for the ts also…?? one thing, was the framework for this, and you were just enclosing it? Oh, and “Old Glory” looks grrrrrrrrrr8 back there. :)

Roger, for the mean time I probably will use it for an outfeed, but it’s a pain to take off every time, eventually I’ll build one. Yeah, I used the INCRA aluminium frame that came with the router table, the frame has a 1/2” dado in it to accept plywood, or in this case maple!

Hi Lance,
I recently acquired the same Incra table and want to enclose it.
I really like how yours turned out.
How did you end up attaching the router box to the frame?

I used Kreg Pocket hole jig, I attached it to the table top, and to the front face frame. There is a small 3/4” gap in the back from the box to the back panel.

Good luck!

This is definitely a wonderful addition to your shop and looks good too.
