Looks like your build is coming along nicely. I built Norm’s cabinet and found that the vent holes he installed in the plexiglass door are unnecessary and counterproductive because they are located directly across from the dust collection fitting. This results in the airflow being horizontal rather than circular. Also, the gap around the inset door lets in plenty of air.

If more make-up air is needed, you can add an adjustable vent like those found on Weber grills on the back of the table directly behind the router. This is handy when cutting dados and dust can’t be sucked through the fence. I did this on my other router table thats based on a Norm’s design but with a partial overlay door and it works great.
