I designed this router table using Google Sketch Up. It includes a storage shelf, four drawers and a cabinet for accessing the router. It also includes dust collection ports.

Looks very functional cincywoodworker. Just our of curiosity, what did you use for the miter gauge channel?

This is a nice router table. I like its size and it looks like you have added plenty of storage to it.

Nice one. I am looking for a router table at the moment and trying to decide if to build or buy. I am also watching Craigslist for a homemade table.

A router table just makes life so much easier. nice job on this one. I’d love to see more pictures of the back and the drawers.

GeeDubs: Both the miter channel and router fence are from Peachtree ( The router plate was from Kreg.

Abbot: If you can find the time, build one. I didn’t watch my costs but I think I came out ahead compared to the prices you can find. I also wanted a bigger table top, and I have no regrets.

Cory: Here are a few more pictures,the drawers are just simple rabbeted drawers. and the back is just hardboard panels with dust ports drilled through. I think the best thing is that the center cubby is sealed well so I get good dust collection.

Thanks everyone.

Nice job on the table. I see you have the same Grizzly DC that I have. How do you like it?

The dust collector works well, I wish I would spend some time permanently running drops for the tools instead of pulling flex hoses but it works well for now.
