Maybe the answer to this seems obvious but would like some feedback . I just assembled a BenchDog ProTop router table. They are designed to be used on a benchtop of course.
I thought all along that is exactly how I would use it. Perhaps store it underneath the bench when I don’t need it.
However, after assembly I was thinking about the possibility of building a dedicated cabinet for it.Matching it up with a nice cabinet out of Baltic Birch.
Looking at regular full size router tables I noticed they are around 32 inches high. Since benchtop router tables are designed to sit on benchtops which are already around 30 inches, the 16 inch height of the ProTop would make the total working height of the router table around 46”.
Second question: If I build a dedicated bench , I was thinking about making it around 16 inches high so the combined total working height would be around 32”.
For you guys who use these tables, is that a more comfortable height or should I think about building the cabinet around 30 inches so it will be the same height as a utility bench.
This would make the router table 46” high and allow me to have the cabinet the same height as my utility bench.
