My router cabinet.

Rockler top and fence.
Plywood sides with walnut trim.
Storage drawers on bottom have slides.
Drawers on left have no slides.
Drawers on right are for router bits, one 1/4” shank and two 1\2” shank drawers.
Top drawer on right is false because of the on off switch on the right side.
Slots along bottom of plexiglass door to help pull dust out the back.
Locking casters on all four corners.
2-1/2” wye on the back with soft tubing for fence.

Overall I am very happy with this. It fits my needs pretty well. I wish it had more storage, but I guess that is always a constant problem.

Very nice looking with the contrasting wood. I will keep this in mind as I plan to make one this year.

Wow! Great build. Did you have a plan or did you come up with it yourself?

That’s a Norm Abram Rev 2 router table. I have one that looks a lot like that – very happy with it.

I wish it had more storage…

Wow, just wow! I cannot afford to fill mine up!
