I finally finished my router table after working on and off for months. The design was highly inspired by Lance’s very detailed blog. I am a novice woodworker and made this project an opportunity to try as many techniques as possible. The carcass was assembled using both Kreg pocket screws and my Domino. The frame and panel sides were fairly straight forward using an adjustable Freud set. Frames are soft maple and panels are baltic birch. The drawer fronts proved to be challenging. Soft maple as well with a walnut lamination. The large drawer front on the bottom is the 2nd take. I completed the first and cut it an inch short (ouch)! Dust collection works great and I learned a lot in the process.

A very nice cabinet. I noticed you put your on/off switch on the back side instead of in front.

Very nice router table. It’ll serve you for long time. I really like the accent lines on the front.

AJ1104,

I’m not the OP, but the dimensions of the table top, if that’s what you’re asking, are 27” x 43”, it’s the Incra offset router table, I have the same one and I believe they only make one size in that off-set config.

OP… really nice cabinet.

Greg – the only decent switch I could find only had mounting tabs on the left and impeded the router box if mounted up front. As it turns out I like the switch on the left – I am usually over there after my last pass.

They also offer a 24×36 offset table – Santa is bringing me one. I am in the process of finishing up the basic stand, I will add drawers and storage after I have the top to mount.
Jeremy, I’ve been seriously considering ordering their downdraft cabinet – looks like you built yours, did you follow their (Incra’s) plans?

Bill, I did not know about the Incra downdraft cabinet. My box under the router is made from 1/2” Appleply screwed to the back, side, and front frames and sealed with silicone. I purchased a 4” dust port from a local Woodcraft store and used that to lay out the hole in the rear panel. If you can get one from Incra I would go for it – surely less complicated!
