I broke down at a wood show and purchased a Kreg Router Table. I love having a decent router setup but quickly realized that I needed to enclose the base with some useful storage. Probably nothing you have seen before. I wanted to use as much of the space as I could including behind the wide blue frame pieces. The space behind the side doors I plan on storing gigs, feather boards, pushes, etc.
The space under the top was made accessible with a hinge and some gas pistons for a lift. Really works good. I not only picked up the extra storage space under the top, but also gained great access to the router. Added some trimmed pipe insulation to help seal the saw dust. Made adjustable draft control for front middle door, may need more holes?
Noticed the power switch mounted in the middle. Tried it in a couple different spots and couldn’t get use to it or it messed up where I wanted a door or drawer. That is a Kreg switch and used a dremel to cut the square hole to mount it there. Also makes it easy to remove the whole router when needed as its plugged into the same compartment.
I’m still thinking about a drawer at the bottom if needed.
