Great job! Did you design it yourself? I like the flip up top. It will save lots of bending.

Surely it is a very nice and useful Router Table. You did it very well.How long it took you to complete this project?Do the swivel casters have built-in locking mechanism?

Its dimension.Table 30” x 22”. Base 24”x 20” X 34” plus caster.
I took 5 days to complete this project. I am using casters without locking mechanisme. Cheaper version. Use wedge to lock the casters.

That looks great Quite frankly I like the tilting table better then the removable router plate. You just saved yourself at least $300. I usually use this reasoning on my wife to get her to authorize my purchase of more tools. Rarely ever works but it is always fun trying.
Thanks for posting the pics/project.

It really looks great! I salute you on your bravery (for spending this much time using ” far eastern plywood”). I watch my bookshelves delaminating daily. I think I may have more money tied up in glue for repairs than in the ” far eastern plywood”.

Looks very functional. Is the top plywood also?

Nice cabinet . This is the first time I’ve seen a D-handled base used in a router table. I’m not familiar with that model (looks like a Makita color) Is there enough room to change bits through the opening , or do you have to pull the motor each time ? Do you plan on adding dust collection and /or ventilation holes ? Is the top plywood or laminated partcle board / MDF ? Where did you get that nice switch from ? The drawers are a great addition too : )

I agree that “far eastern plywood” has some disadvantages. However, its seem work for me.Tabletop is plywood laminated with “formica” Yes, Router from Makita. I’ve only that router. Not much choices left for me.I live outside USA. That why some of electrical components a little bit different. There was enough room to change bits through the opening. May be in future I will add dust collection holes. Right now, I just used household vacuum cleaner.
