Well, heres the monster I built this weekend. I realize its not refined and pretty. Truth is, it likely won’t get too much more attention than this. Anyhow, the top was made out of a chunk of bowling alley. I have never used MDF, and was going to make the cabinet out of it, but the local lumber yard has to order “that kind of stuff.” So OSB was the answer. As I am not a fan of following organized plans, I just looked some over and tried to get a few ideas. This is the result. I tried to spray foam the inside area where athe router actually hangs out. This was in an attempt to reduce noise, and I’m not too happy with the results. You can use it without hearing protection now, but it’s still a little louder than I would have liked. This is the first time I have really built anything like this, and cutting the hole for the insert was a bit tricky. It didn’t turn out perfect, but I’ve sure learned a thing or two on this project.
