Well after working on this every now and then I finally finished her. It’s going to be sooooo nice working on a real router table for a change.

What sort of dynabolts did you use to mount it on the wall!

Thanks, sorry about the sideways pics. My phone has a mind of its own sometimes.

Thanks for the compliments. I really enjoyed building it. I think I’m becoming addicted to this whole woodworking stuff.

I hope it is, I was just going off of research and what I “think” would work well for me. Never used anything that fancy by any means. I used to despise building anything out of wood (I have a welding shop at home) I came across a Powermatic 66 table saw that was just too nice to pass up and learned quickly how fun woodworking can be with the right tools….I was hooked and became a “Tool collector for the last 8 months”. The woodworking part of the shop is almost completed.

Thank you. For some strange reason I’m wanting the capabilities to make raised panel doors… don’t need to just want to, go figure

Thanks for all the compliments. I really can’t take credit for the cabinet, I kinda followed an online print but added changes where I thought things should be different. As far as cost…..wow waaaay more than I would ever want to admit….BUT I didn’t skimp on the lift and router and used the new Jessem fence system. If a person was to buy everything it would run right about $1500 complete.

Pics are fine on my phone, they rotated when I loaded them on the site. I even tried rotating them and saving before loading but they still loaded sideways.. oh well
