Project Information

A few months back I bought the Incra LS Positioner with the table, insert and a leg set with the intention of mounting the table in a cabinet with dust collection and storage. Here's my finished product. The base cabinet is 3/4" maple plywood with popular face frame. The drawers are Baltic birch plywood with poplar drawer fronts mounted on full extension ball bearing guides. Double locking casters all around. The template storage organiser is made from two sheets of synthetic cutting board material and machined with 52 individual slots and the top is covered with poly carbonate then mounted in the top drawer. Rockler safety switch mounted on the side and a 4" dust port and a vented door on the front of the router compartment. I applied 2 coats of General Finishes Seal A Cell and 3 coats of semi gloss Oil & Urethane. The top is attached through 6 corner blocks, weather stripping between the top and the cabinet structure and secured with just enough pressure to slightly compress the weather stripping. Thanks for viewing!

Make sure you have plenty of ventilation for that router. I have heard horror stories of people burning up brand new routers beacause of heat buildup.

Very well done. Nice work. Here's a rookie question for you. Is the weather stripping installed between the top and the cabinet there to cancel out vibration, keep dust out, both or is it there to serve some other purpose?

Excellent cabinet build and it looks very functional. You definitely chose the best router fence system with the Incra.

Wow, I really like how this turned out! I'll definitely be using this one, as well as it's predecessor, as references. I'm sure many accurate and beautiful pieces will rsult from the construction of this router table.

Michael the weather stripping is there to account for any mating issue that may exist between the bottom surface of the top and the cabinet which may or may not decrease dust collection efficiency.

Rusty I haven't used the system much but now that the cabinet is built I will be using it a lot more. I did use it in some elements of the cabinet construction. The template organizer would've been a big pain in the butt if I hadn't had the Incra fence system. It allowed for quick and precise cuts in the cutting board material.

Thank you all for your kind comments and thanks for viewing!
