I am building a new router table roughly based on plans published Fine Woodworking Tools and Shops 2001 article by John White. His design has a dedicated shop vac in a separate compartment below the router. It collects dust/chips from the fence and the box housing router. Dust from the fence is sucked into the box below via a sheet metal dust deflector. Anyone built something along these lines? Has anyone built this table or one similar to it?
Don’t have room or funds for a real dust collection system
My current table is on locking casters. Don’t like this as it is not rock solid. The John White plan has 2 fixed casters on one side of table and the other side has plywood on the floor. I would think this would be much more stable and easy to lift one end and move the table as necessar
