« Part 5: Drawer Slides Installed & Router Cavity Walls Made Part 6 of Router Cabinet Redo series Part 7: Adding a plywood plate to attach My router table »

The front Stretcher is a piece of solid oak 1 5/8” wide.. I just placed to 2 pocket holes in each end and screwedit in ..I know of people don’t think pocket holes are not really woodworking but I find it very useful to install butt joints

Because I wanted every thing flush at the front of the cabinet I had to cut a notch in my middle panels that outline the router cavity so as that the Stretcher was nice and tight

Here is a picture
