This project has been a long time coming. I have seen lots of very fine variations on LJ’s, but after looking at my specific needs I came up with this. The table top was made of a 1 1/4 office desk top that has Formica lamination on both the top and bottom. The Cabinet is birch ply with matching bitch drawer fronts. The drawers are made of 1/2 in poplar with through dovetail joints with the exception of the bottom drawer and that is made from 3/4 inch poplar with through dovetail joints. The two largest drawers are equipped with heavy duty (100lb) full access hinges. I equipped the table with a shutoff paddle switch and a 2 socket outlet, as I use the table for more than routing and wanted to have the power. I contemplated weather to make the table top a lift top or a hard mount. My previous table had the lift top and I decided I liked the extra access it provided, as it makes it easier to do the maintenance on my router without having to remove it from the table. As for power for the router, I installed a hidden junction bow behind the outlet to plug the router in. Acccess to this area is gained by removing the drawers on the top right side and removing the cover plate. My fence and lift are both made by Jessum.
Thanks for looking.
