Nice router cabinet.

I have that same Incra fence but never installed it because it needed a top with the router mounted on the end, like yours. Never understood why that fence arm had to be so long. It wasn’t cheap either!

I like how you made it look like two drawer fronts on the top.

Thanks for the inspiration to finally build one.

Beautiful Project!!! Thanks so much for sharing…. I have the same Fence Setup and have always loved it. Great work and truly an inspiration to see built and ready to run. I immediately added it to my favorites and hope to find the time to build something similar at some point.

Great build and hard to go wrong with the Incra system…. A real beauty…. As far as pricing goes, Do not be afraid to charge for your time… I was not charging enough in the beginning on projects and found very quickly that I needed to up my prices…. My thought is Materials + supplies + time @ 20.00/hr… I’m sure it could be more, but I sell as a hobby as it is not my primary income and have no real overhead. The more I charged for cutting boards the more people wanted them. I’m sure demographics of living in Southern California has some do with the price as well. Over the yrs I have talked with many on here who found them self’s working for less than they should have.

I can’t think of a thing to add to your router table. You have done a fine job with the design and build. I think Ken90712 has given you some good advice on a pricing formula providing you are doing this as a hobby.
