when i moved to Texas from Utah I lost the wood shop on base. I had to make one in my garage. Everything fits on one wall. I found the plans for the big bench against the wall in an issue of Family Handyman. I just modified it for the router station and cabinets. Everything is plywood and pine.

Very Nice…kind of looks familiar…:-)
Note: This is my son in law. I had one in my garage similar to his. He gave me a copy of the plans.
It works well as it is up off of the floor.

That’s a nice work station design.
Great workmanship, really clean, efficient.
I think a light under there and a couple more handy electrical plug ins would be nice.

Great design and craftsmanship. It looks like you got a lot in the limited space.

I like this. Really clean design, very practical. What is the router insert plate made from?

It seems to be tranparent, which is exactly what i am looking for.

Nicely bulled boots too btw :-)
