I made it in like 1 hours out off plywood scraps screwed together so there’s nothing fancy but it does the job.

I had 4 things in mind :

- To be able carry my router with one hand so I can open the doors easily.

- A place to store my router while the bit finnish spinning

- A stand to secure the router upside down for installing jigs and changing router bits.

- Removable storage for all the accessories and bits.

So there it is …

This looks great to me. Just one “saved” router bit will make this solution pay for itself. Well done.

very unique and so handy. I may have to copy this to park my router insert, without dismounting the router from the plate. Grateful thanks for sharing this idea with the forum members.

Very clever design! Bit changing stand is genius . All routers should be required to have a flat top, why some do not is a mystery to me.
