I finally got around to building my first router table, it took me about 5 minutes of use to realise I should have built it a long time ago, what a useful tool this will be. I pretty much followed the plans exactly except for mounting the station on 4” castors. I didn’t add the door and cabinet dust collection as I only have a vac which would not be able to remove any dust from such a large box. I also think that a bit of extra air intake for the router will not hurt as I live in Thailand and it is hot all year round. The router is a Maktec MT360 attached to a shop made plate I cut from 10mm thick acrylic. Commercial plates are not available here and importing one would cost the same as the router. A future project will be to make a plate with different inserts for different bit openings. I used rubber wood for the drawer fronts instead of plywood to dress it up a little.
