I built this router table cabinet a couple of years ago, but never got around to posting up any pictures. The table top and fence is the Rockler package. But everything below the table top was custom designed and built. The carcass is 3/4” plywood and the door and drawer fronts are 3/4” MDF. There are a few small drawers for my router wrenches, trim router, dovetail jig parts, etc. I built in a paddle switch for convenience and safety in turning the router on and off. There are two full extension drawers fitted with router bit storage foam for all my bits. Finally, there is a large full extension drawer on the bottom for my spare router, Akeda dovetail jig and assorted router accessories.

SirFatty: No, no finish. Straight MDF on the fronts, and cabinet grade ply for the carcass.
