I made this router table cabinet for my shop. I put drawers for router bits and wrenches. The bottom of the cabinet houses my router case. This cabinet was made out of cheap pine. I used my own design but took sme ideas from others that I have seen. So far, it has worked great.

That looks like a good one. I need to build something for my router when I find the time. Welcome to Lumberjocks!

You did a nice job building your router table cabinet. It is always fun to build something for the shop.

Mike, my router plate is not secured to the top and just sits in a grove. The entire router, bolted to the plate, lifts out as one to change the bits.
