Hi everyone, I am getting an Incra 27”x43” router table top for Christmas and have been trying to find plans for building a cabinet for it. I have found a couple of plans that I like, but they aren’t for an offset top. I have been thinking about modifying one to accommodate the offset top, but I would really like to find some plans that I won’t have to modify since this will be my first major project. Does anyone know where I might can find some plans for this top?

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

This one looks pretty simple.

That may be something to consider DKV. It would definitely be cheaper than thinking about doing. I am wanting to build one with sliding drawers and dust collection built in. I also want casters on it because my shop space is limited.

Router tables are by far one of the most well used pieces of equipment in the workshop.If you are really interested in woodworking then you need this table at some point of time. So before we build this table we have to make sure the woodworking plans are complete. Next we have to take measurements for making the table. You should know where to pierce the holes to join the wooden boards to form the table. The table must be strong. It must be able to withstand pressures. The table has to exactly fit in the space that you have allocated for it. Without good table plans, you will not get a good table.There are plenty of plans online which will help you to build your table.
