Its time to post this as a project since its been a blog item for about a month.. I am still working on an actual router table top that I’m making out of 3/4’’ MDF.

Everything in this cabinet at home I made and it was a very educational journey . There are about 16 photos of various aspects of the cabinet but I added only 6 since that’s all I am allowed. If you want to see more pics look at my blog..

Not a bad build but just a couple of comments…

Do you really need router bit storage that tall? I can’t really think of any bits that need that much clearance and you could fit (maybe) two bit storage drawers in the space you have taken for one on each side.

I think (I did) I would opted for a large drawer on the bottom instead of two doors. To me it is a lot easier to get/put things into a full-extension drawer than to fumble around in a cavity that close to the floor.

I appreciate your comments but I like the overall functionality of the cabinet and if for my first ever build of a project this big I am delighted how it turned out

I sure didn’t mean to be knocking your work. Just comments. It is a gorgeous build.

Edwood I think the cabinet looks great. Any chance you could email me the overall dimensions? I’m trying to come up with a cabinet for the top I’ve put together and I like your design. Nice work.
