Another router table project. Nothing fancy, but it works great!
For a top, I’m using a Rockler high-pressure laminate router top and plate with a Triton router (above table bit change is the best!)
Cabinet and drawer fronts are all 3/4” birch plywood. Drawer boxes and back are 1/2”. For the router compartment door, I used some 1x poplar and some plexi-glass with four holes for air-flow. I made the drawer fronts and pulls so they’d match all the other shop furniture.
As far as dust collection, I made a channel and back inside the router compartment, leading to a 4” DC hookup (similar to Norms newer router table). Along with the 2” DC hookup at the fence, I get practically no sawdust at the table or the router box.
Also a note, if you’re going to table-mount a Triton router, remove the two clear plastic guards on either side of the base…that made a major improvement with dust collection.
