After about 8 months of working on this off and on, the cabinet is finally done. Made out of scraps from other projects, mostly oak plywood edge banded with iron on banding and finished with poly. The handles are oak and walnut. added the walnut for some contrast color.
The door for router access is removable hand has a kind of blast gate incorporated into it with the holes and a sliding gate via the knob. It’s held on with 2 magnetic catches.
Currently the cabinet has hinged outriggers with casters on it for mobility. When I get in a permanent shop I hope to have it stationary. The work surface is just over 35” high.
The Dust Deputy was added yesterday. That thing works great. Two more things on my wish list are a router lift and external on/off switch. Somewhere I saw a switch that takes 2 power sources, 1 for the router and 1 for the shop vac but I haven’t been able to find it again.
