Workshop Router Table

author-gravatar CygnusA Sep 05, 2017

Here is the first of many shop projects I have planned. I didn't take pictures during the build of this mainly because I was figuring it out as I went and my shop/garage is a wreck right now until I actually get storage built. I already had the JessEm router lift and Bosch router that was previously mounted in my sawstop extension. 

  • Fence: Incra LS Super System (17" version)
  • Top: Incra 27x43" (top sits 35" from floor)
  • Lift: JessEm Rout-R-Lift II
  • Router: Bosch 1617
  • Box: 24x29.5x40", 3/4" ply, domino constuction, edge banded using 3/4" poplar 
  • Drawers: 22.5x20" and  15x20", 1/2" ply, dado construction, 3/4" poplar false fronts, KV TT100 drawer slides
  • Router Cabinet: Completely sealed with front panel held by magnets and weather stripping
  • Wheels: 3" swivel casters from the big box store
  • Pulls: 11" satin gold to match the Incra bling (short 1 pulled. I ordered more)
  • Painted using a Fuji Q5 HVLP with Benjamin Moore Advanced paint
