It’s geting closer to looking like a router table

I finished up the bottom drawers today. You can see I had a couple of scratches that I thought were small enough to sand out. That turned out to be a pretty signifcant error in jundgment. About halfway through the sanding it became apparent to me but, like the energizer bunny, I kept going and going.

I thought about flipping it around and using the other side as the face but the color and grain on the other side was too different and I wanted the fronts to match. All things consiered it’s a relatively minor issue though and it will serve as a reminder to me.

But the drawer space is a plenty

I’ve got room for the Bosch power planer, the Kreg Jigmaster, Porter Cable Router case, and something else that I haven’t decided on yet.

This one will be the router bit storage and is going in the top right.

I ran out of shellac today so I called it quits with that glue up.

Nice table. I like the idea of incorporating drawers in the table. You never have enough storage in the shop.

Almost looks more like furniture than tools. Nice work.

Have your say...
