Work Shop Update!
Is any work shop truly complete without a dual router station?
I used to think so until I started making cabinet doors, windows and entry doors. Struggling with moving from one set up to the next I thought it would be best to have a dual router station. The router on the right you can set to cut the stiles and the one on the left you can set up for the rails and never have to mess around with the set up.
I like to keep my shop furniture cheap and simple but versatile. This station was built using nothing more than spruce 2×4s. ¾ shop birch ripped in into 2 ½ “strips for the top frame and covered in ¾ black melamine and wrapped with a poplar band. It houses 2 Freud routers and 2 Freud router plates. In hindsight I think I might close in the routers and install lifts on each one along with drawers and a dust / vacuum system.
