Incra LS Router Table Fence System. I already had a router table (Norm Abrams style) but really liked the incra system and wanted it for dovetails. extremely happy with the Incra. I wanted to utilize the space for drawers to organize accessories for the table. The accuracy of the fence system makes it my go to router table every time. it is nice having two tables though, especially when you are routing any profile that uses two bits. like cope & stile or tongue and groove. I can set up one table for each profile then I don’t need to keep changing bits.
I love to finish using aniline dye then spraying a durable polyurethane coating on top. I doesn’t nick and scratch like paint does. all of my shop cupboards are finished the same.

Excellent, the details are well thought out! I like the finish you used so I will be looking into trying that out next project rather than paint.

Looks great. I recently built a table for my LS25 too. How does your undertable DC work? I see a lot of holes in your front plate – I had to cover up some of mine to get good downdraft around the router bit. Also, have you tried the cleansweep insert rings? They really help with under table DC.

Thanks Woodbutcher, I buy all my aniline dye’s from Woodworkers Supply here’s a link to the color chart for water based. they also have Oil and Alcohol based aniline dye’s. There’s a video available ”Finishes That Pop with Glen D. Huey” that turned me on to aniline dyes.

Tanks Philba, I don’t have the cleansweep system. I would like that system; however I didn’t plan it into my build first. The drawers (bottom) make it a no option. If they made the cleansweep system with rear collection instead of bottom I would have tried it. Back to your question, No I don’t have good DC in the router cavity. Maybe I’ll try blocking some holes off and see if it helps. My current project takes all my time now. Getting close to staining it.

Thanks LaneBros, I used 1/2” plywood but several times during the build I had thought I should have used 3/4” plywood and trimmed back the edges to fit the 1/2” grooves that are in the legs. It was just a thought and I don’t remember why now. But the 1/2” plywood does a fine job.

Thanks LFD3908, the ceiling is one of the only things that remain from when I bought this house with detached outbuildings. Here’s a thought, if you zoom in on my location which is posted on my Blog then switch over to Satellite you can see the layout.The previous owner must have found a place where he could buy garage door panels. They are 16’ aluminum clad Styrofoam cores from garage doors. They serve well for heating and AC. I replaced the furnace that he had with an 80,000 Mr Heater Gas furnace mounted to the ceiling. A window on the South Wall holds a 1 ton window AC unit that does a fine job on only a low setting. even with 100 degree weather I can work comfortably.

I recently got the same components you have and would like to build a cabinet for the stand. After searching the internet and comparing several builds,
I like your design best. I am just starting out with woodworking and could use some advise on the layout you used. Specifically, what dimensions
Did you use for your DC cabinet? Face frame material? (1 1/2”?). Also, how tall did you make your different drawers? Have you made any improvements since your initial build? Any other advise you might have? Thank you very
Much!
Troy
