Well was in need of a Router Cabinet, With lots of storage.This is my version. Basic White Oak construction. Large Laminate top 27” x 42”, Incra T-Tracks with scales all with zero at bit center. Miter Track with T-Track, 48” fence with adjustable throat to 3 1/2” made of Grey PVC sheet material, stop blocks with rear storage on fence. Router lift with 7518 Porter Cable router and Jacobs Quick release collet. plenty of bit storage I needed badly, Big double sliding drawer for added storage of other router, jigs, and extra bits. Center hinged pull out drawer, for router access and tools storage. 3” vaccume port with 2” port to bit throat. Hope you all like My Present to ME. Sounds a little selfish.

Absolutely Magnificant!!!! Well thought out design and above average craftsmanship…

Did you use plans??? I have been collecting ideas/plans for several months and plan to start my Router Table after the Holidays… Yours is the best I’ve seen.. Hope you don’t mind if I steal your design…

Thanks Guys,
This was my Design, based on my needs. Will help with your questions. But there were no plans. Incra for scales and T-tracks 18” & 48” plus both left and right scales, Woodpecker for the miter/T-track combo 48”, Jiontect lift Jacobs speed chuck, “love them” both of my big mounted routers have them, plus extra in drawer. Two 24” – 75# full extension glides and one 10” full extension glide. Fence is MDF milled and angle braced with slots for T Bolts to adjust throat adjustment, PVC Sheet I bought off Cleveland – Craigslist, the guy has everythinf from 1/8” to 3” sheets all sizes, very easy to mill with saws and router example 2” x 36” x 96” sheet was 90.00. I rip it to and size I need for jigs and what nots, wrong hole location JB Weld and sand new again.

I don’t know what to be more jealous of – the great router table or the collection of router bits! Both are great – nice work on the table.

Wow, is all I can say. Truly spectacular, wow. Did I say wow?

Have your say...
