Since I use my garage as a shop and have limited space, I had the desire to combine my router table and SawStop into one cabinet and create some storage in the process. I started with a purchased plan but only used the support base in the plan and drastically changed the cabinet portion of the plan to add a lot of storage. There are three drawers under the saw with one false drawer front on the dust cabin. The center tall cabinet in the middle is a storage shelf for blades and tablesaw accessories. My router cabin has two chambers so I can pull the dust from the router cabin and from the top of the table via a 2-inch ported hole that I drilled in the table. My router fence (box) tunnels the dust down into the dust cabin. This design allows me to get rid of the hose that typically sticks out the back of the router fence. The drawers under the router hold all of my router bits (built-in bit tray) and the bigger drawer holds my other routers and router accessories.

Here are a few updated pictures of my SawStop router cabinet with my Outfeed Table and Dust Arm additions. My outfeed table auto locks into place. Here’s a link showing how I designed the support ….

My Fold-down Outfeed Table addition is something I’ve needed for a long time. No longer will I have to rely on a 12” adjustable roller stand. Since I move my table saw in different positions I was constantly adjusting the stand to account for the slightly uneven garage floor.

Could you post some detail pictures of your router fence design. I think others might be interested to see how you have done this for dust extraction. Very good idea, but I for one would be interested in more detail on the idea.

Ted, this is a wonderful addition to your shop. You have certainly added some needed storage to your table saw by mounting it on a movable cabinet and putting a router in the extension wing was an excellent idea.

This is cool!
