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!

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.
