Topic tags/keywords: incra ls custom cabinet router table build

I’ve just started into woodworking in the last year and this is my first post, so forgive me if some of these seem like dumb questions! After much research, I purchased the Incra LS positioner, table top, and stand. I’ve seen several posts of nice enclosed cabinets that people have made using these components to create organized storage. These are very appealing to me cuz I can imagine if I don’t have a cabinet, I’ll have router bits and accessories strewn all over my garage! My Questions are: How can you build a cabinet with drawers/door, with enclosed dust collection while using the router table for the project? ie can you assemble the stand with the 1/2” panels and table top first to get the tool up and running, then build the rest into it without having to take everything apart? What is the best approach here? Use the tool for a while then build a cabinet? Or build it from the start? Any tips for a newby from those who’ve “been there and done that” would be greatly appreciated!

I just built a box to fit the cabinet, added drawers and door and put it on a shelf in the stand. I then added a 4” dust port in the back.

Guys Woodshop on youtube, just finished a 2 part video series on building the stand and cabinet for an incra table, might want to give it a look for some ideas.

Woodchuck2010 built a nice unit, but notice no sawdust in the dust lines. He’s never used it for a serious project.

And he’s back. Mark, this was right after I put the dust collection on. You’ve been good for a while, please don’t start up with the negative comments again. Thank you.

Thanks for the replies. Very nice cabinet, Woodchuck. I really like the peg board storage on the sides. I’ll incorporate that in mine. So looks like you built it separate then installed it in the metal framework of the stand. Incra’s stand has channels for 1/2’’ panels so they need to be placed prior to attaching the table top, which seems to necessitate constructing the cabinet within the metal stand framework. Thanks also Notw for the link to Guys woodshop. He has an interesting dust collection set up using the clean sweep box. Seems like having all those hoses in the back of the cabinet limit space some, Looks like it works well though. I think I’ll put my panels in and attach the table top and get the system up and running so I can play with it some before I go ahead with building out the cabinet.
