I purchased the Kreg router table and base. Installed a Triton router. I decided to modify the cabinet insert plans on the Kreg website as the photos show. Instead of one center door covering the router compartment and a lower compartment, I added a drawer to the lower middle of the cabinet. I also modified the pullout router bit drawer on the right to allow the Kreg safety switch to be incorporated into the front of the cabinet.
I used 3/4 ” plywood for the frame of the cabinet (like the Kreg plans). The drawer is made of 1/2” plywood. The drawer and cabinet fronts are 3/4” pine. I did my best to line up the grain patterns. Eventually I’ll add another drawer underneath.
This was a fun project for a beginner. I learned how to use the Kreg pocket hole system. Plus I learned how to install drawer slides and euro cabinet hinges.
I used plywood scraps from the project to make a clamp rack. Next I’m going to tackle some more complex cabinet projects for shop storage.
