This is just a simple cart for my router table. I had some scrap plywood laying around, and some left over pieces of Maple for the trim. I just got the Kreg jig and was looking for something to build. The table with the router in it is a bit heavy, and after back surgery a couple years ago, having to bend and twist while carrying it was making my back act up. So I threw this together Saturday afternoon, not bad for 2 hours. My plan is to make the top two shelves into drawers so I can utilize the full depth of the cart, the top one for router bits, the second for sandpaper and steel wool. This is phase one of creating a more organized and space-efficient garage. Space is limited, and right now there is a shelf made with 2×4’s behind it that this table used to sit on. I will be replacing that with a row of cabinets/shelves. The wall space behind it helps, I took the cleat system plans from Family Handyman.
Again, nothing fancy, no fancy joinery or anything, I’m just happy that things are slowly becoming organized and better to work with.
P.S. It looks too tall in the picture, but the top of the table is 41”, which for my size is right where I’d like it.
