After posting my upgraded router table, I noticed interest from few LJs about my router bit and guide bushing pullout trays. So, here are some close-up photos.

The router bit tray is a drilled through 3/4’’ MDF nailled to a 1/4’’ thick MDF from under.

The bushing tray is also 3/4’’ nailled to a 1/4’’ thick MDF but counterbores have been done at the drill press sized to the diameter and depth of the threaded side of the guide bushings.

If you take a closer look, you’ll note that my router table is grooved to receive another tray, when needed (read ASAP).

A nice addition, right?

Best,

Serge

Nice job. It’s great to have the bits handy and organized like this. I did something similar on my router table at work using leftover pegboard. Well done…
