My router table cabinet insert is finally finished…ish. Just a few details to mop up. Not that the blue color gives it away but it’s a Kreg table that I upgraded with a Jessem Mast-R-Lift II and a PC 75182 motor. The cabinet is loosely based on Kreg’s plan but since I wanted to incorporate a magnetic power switch, I replaced one of the side pullouts with an aluminum control panel and threw in a digital hour meter for good measure.

I also didn’t make a pullout for the left side but left it open, for feather board storage. The divided drawer accommodates a full size foam router bit tray, with room left over for bit accessories. I have another foam tray on order that I’ll cut down to fit the other side.

I decided not to hard wire the router to make maintenance easier on myself but I did pigtail the power cord to get rid of the extra length. It passes through desk grommet in the side of the dust box to an outlet in cubby behind the power panel that provides cord storage space.

I used Krylon 2X Brilliant Blue to color match the control panel, door/drawer pulls, door vent, and outlet cover as best I could. It’s a little lighter that true Kreg blue but it’s not too bad.
