Okay, I have to say thank the good lord for DIY network and DVR’s. I am a New Yankee junkie and have also discovered Woodworks with David Marks. This morning I was watching a recording of New Yankee from a couple days ago and Norm was building what he called a deluxe router table, which had some improvements over his old design. I saw a couple things I just had to add to mine, so I took the top back off and went to town. I got rid of the 4” dust port and added 1-1/2” pvc at the bottom of the cabinet, then created a funnel out of 3/4” plywood. I put a piece of 1/4” plywood flat on top of all that to seal the top of the funnel, and added a melamine slope so that the chips would slide down it, right in front of the dust funnel. I tee’d the back of the pvc pipe and added a riser of about 8”. I then created a dust port for the fence and was lucky enough to find another hose for my shop vac at the local Ace hardware. I was able to use the fittings for the hose and connected a piece of the hose to the pvc riser with a hose clamp. I took the other half of the hose and connected to the pvc tee and simply attached it to my shop vac like normal. I also added a door on some spare cabinet magnets so I could get into and out of the router bay easily.
