Great looking station. The formica should work well. And lots of storage to.

Looks really nice. Can you give us some info on the router and the lift? So I can be even more jealous.

JRAP I have a PC 690 in the table now, I bought a Triton 3 1/4 H but I’m not very familiar with it yet. No router lift the PC I can adjust above the table, same with the Triton maybe some day I’ll feel the need for one. Thanks for the kind words Jrqp & recycle1943

Very nice build there, kind of make me think I should get off my butt and build one. Take another picture with the drawer open, we want to see more.

Nice work, love the green color. Should give you years of great service and many projects.

Homemade router tables are so much better than any you can purchase. Just my opinion. Well done.

What a beautiful cabinet. I am trying to come to terms with the idea of having furniture in the shop that is nicer than what is in the rest of the house (it’s a personal problem). I love it! This looks like it would be a pleasure to use and will give you great results!
