This is one of my first projects after I bought the house from the kitchen cabinets project I posted before. Got the idea from Norm Abram on New Yankee Workshop. Used poplar for face frame and doors. The plastic in doors had laying around shop, and The top and fence were old boards I got from work.

That sure is a purdy router cabinet! Nice job.

Do you have dust collection intergrated? Love the insert plate! What brand/manufacturer is that?

I’m sure this router cabinet/table/fence is going to serve you well!!

BTW: Welcome to LJs! A nice little slice of insanity!!!

I really like your router stand, excellant workmanship.
I have one question? Is that a variable speed control on the outside and if it is what a great idea, I love it!!

Well done. Great looking table. I would suggest putting some hard wood Molding around the tops edge giving it a more finished look and protecting it as well. Great work and enjoy I know I couldn’t live w/o my table…
