This was my first attempt at bulding a case that had frame and panel doors and drawers. For the drawers I used a locking rabbit joint. The top is the Kreg precision router table top and I mounted a Triton 2 1/4 HP router to it.

Great job. Now you got lots of storage for all your router bits and pieces.

Excellent – I really need to do one of these for myself.

Very nicely done. Do you access the router via the door? And/or does the top tip back? Do you use the slot much? I don’t have a slot in my table top and wonder about the tradeoff of having one.

Thank you all for your comments. Jim, Yes, I can access the router from the center door. I made the center section of the case totally enclosed to help with noise and dust collection and so far am glad I did that. With the Triton I really only need to access the power switch when changing a bit. It allows above the table bit changes but you have to turn the power switch off first which is a safety feature of the router. The top is fixed to the case but I can take the router insert out quickly when I need full access to the router or to remove it. So far I have only used the miter track for feather boards and a jig I made. The fence on the Kreg table is more like a T-Fence on a table saw and the track is (in theory anyway) parallel to the track.

Have your say...
