I got the plans from woodcraft, overall not bad. I have some criticism of the instructions not being very clear on dimensions for where the rabbits are located, it takes some hunting and math to figure out where to place them but overall a nice design. I basically followed the directions and went with the recommended hardware. I didn’t get to picky on finishing and took the easy way on attaching the trim and door faces. but the cabinet should work nicely once I drop on my router top. I was very happy with the Four drawers for bits, as I use four sizes, 8mm,12mm, 1/4” and 1/2”.

DIYaholic, I’ve got a Lift Master II with top and fence to match. I’ve seen several others I would like more but I got it for a good price and it does everything I need it to. I really like changing bits and adjusting hieght from the top, the fence adjustment is really not likable but it’s sturdy.

majuvla, If you saw it up close you really wouldn’t like the shortcuts I took, but it is for the shop so I did it fast.

Have your say...
