After 20 years with the same router table and with umpteen accumulated accessories and router bits, I decided I needed something with more drawers. I used spalted and figured maple and built on the heavy side. The frame is made of 2”x3” members. The sides and back are 3/16” hardboard. The drawers fronts are also figured maple. I have two large drawers on bottom then two medium and four small at the top.
The top and fence are made by Pinnacle. I bought them a few years back from Woodcraft to help me with the roll top desk. The insert is from Woodpeckers. My dedicated router is a Hitachi M12V.
The top is a bit unusual in that the fence is oriented from the back. What I like most about the Pinnacle table top is its size. With the fence off and the router lowered it can be used as an assembly table.
The front panel you can see in the first photo is mostly decorative and is mainly there to hold the switch. One of the other pictures shows the router box from the back. I decided not to use an under-table vacuum because I really don’t get that much sawdust in there.
As I said it’s heavily built and when I lock the caster there’s no movement at all. This has all the storage I’ll need for a long time.
