Needed a stable platform for my router. Ended up with a mobile router station.

Very Nice router table Garyht. I’m sure it will make your routing much more enjoyable…in addition to having that extra storage space for your router accessories.
Why do alot of people use clear panels on their router access doors, do they like to watch the dust swirl around?

I like the light and the dust collection in the bottom. After seeing your’s if I had mine to do over I think I would put my dc in the bottom. I think it may work better if you made a 1/4 ply funnel to the dc. That way all the sawdust would funnel right to the dc. Just an idea but looks great as it is. Mine is as handy as a pocket on a shirt. Nice work.

Great project, cool with the light inside the cabinet, what is the height and the overall dimensions? Looking at getting into a router setup like this, or a built in on the table saw.
