This is the router cabinet that I just finished. I used a Rockler lift and top. The design came from the internet but was modified to remove the flush mount drawers to make it easier. I used Cabinet plywood and red Oak for the face.

That’s a very nice job on that router cabinet. It will pay off in dividends. Congratulations.

Looks great – a LOT better than mine! This was my first project. Didn’t realize that 3/4” plywood was less than 3/4” until after I completed the Dados and rabbets. Totally out of square. Drawers and door don’t work, etc. Top is flat and works well – enjoy yours!!!

super nice. Question: is it possible that the router will overheat it is in a closed box?

I haven’t had a problem with it overheating. The front of the door is 1/8 Lexan with 4 1.5” holes. I hook my shop to the back and all the dust goes out without any problem. Thanks for all the comments.
