Router stand "upgrade"

My birthday present back in January was the Infinity Tools router stand with the Triton router.

I wanted to utilize the space so last month finally got serious about adding drawers. I still want to add something in the front of my dust/chip collection area. I have to access the router to change bits so am thinking I may add some plastic strips that I could easily reach through but would keep the mess inside that compartment. I constructed this using corner brackets, and bolts into the holes in the metal stand, so I can remove/change as needed down the road.

Really nice and beautifully executed. That’s a major upgrade. I’m always looking for ways to expand my storage in the shop.

Thanks – took a long time but worth the effort.

This was a major upgrade from my little Skil table top unit that I modified.

Thanks for posting this. You’ve given me some ideas for my router table. Yours sure looks like a great addition.

I would share the plans…but mostly in my head other than these great detailed sketches!! Haha…guess that’s why it took me so long.

Sketches like that are all you need as long as you have all the critical dimensions for fitting called out! I work from a sketch on a napkin from the restaurant many times!

cheers, Jim

I agree…even if my husband rolls his eyes at my “planning process.”
