I know….another router table.
I finally finished my table and I am pretty pleased with all the features.
It has a Jessem Router Lift II, full extension drawer slides, Rockler workbench casters, Rockler Pro Fence and I am using a Bosch 1617EVSPK 12 Amp 2-1/4-Horsepower router
If you are interested, you read about here my blog

Thanks for looking and have great Thanksgiving!

I know….another router table.

Personally, I kinda like seeing what others come up with for router table designs. Good job!

Neither this nor your blog deal show details of the bit storage. Care to share that?

Very nice, just what I need but if I built everything I see that I like on Lumberjocks I would have to stay outside the shop because There would be no room to get in. Guess I will have to be happy with what I have.

I am working on that today. They will be basically drop in inserts in the top to drawers. I thinking 1/4” on one side and 1/2” on the other. I also need to make storage holders for my router plate inserts, bushings etc.
Here’s the basic tray.

I’ll be using 1/4” and 1/2” CMT bushing insert like these

I know what you mean. My shop is a small 2 car garage (19’x21’) that still has to house a 25 hp tractor, snow thrower and other yard tools. At least until spring when I can build a shed to completely take it over as a wood shop. Everything I have that is in there is mobile. Surprisingly, as much stuff that is in there, it all works pretty well. Everything has a place (when I put them back….)

Here is a pic of the plan i did when I started to put the shop together this past spring. Some things have changed, but the reality is pretty close to the model.

Here is the bit tray. I need to get some more inserts. The arrangement is temporary and will be updated as my bit collection grows. The tray could hold 187 bits, 1” diameter or less. Obviously spaces would not be used for larger bits. But man, 187 bits in on drawer with easy access and easy removal. I like these inserts.

Thank you all for your comments.
