This is the router table / swap top cabinet I have been working on. The side panels on the top are removable because some of the things I have for the top have attachments and that require them to be removed. In order to maximize the space I used peg board for the sides and five drawer so I can store and hang the stuff related to the tops on/in the bottom. For my router bits I made blocks so I could store them and I could route the edge of the block to show the results of the bit. I wanted to keep the drawers shallow to help keep them from become collect all drawers. However, I made one short sighted mistake the drawers are too shallow for all my bits, but I solved that issue by drilling a hole at 45 degrees in the blocks so now each block can store a 1/4” or 1/2” bit straight up; or a 1/2” at a 45 degree angle and all is right in the world.
One problem that keeps coming back to irratate me are the doors… I biscuit them together and sand them down and bow!!! ...the only way I could think to fix that would be to have to layers have the grain going horizonal and vertical. That is why you see the clamps in the pix above.
