Router table storage

Recommended Posts

Looks nice !  

I drilled a row of holes across the bottom of the router access door for incoming air and cut a hole for a shop vac to hook up in the back.

Nicely done cabinet, Steves idea for air flow is right on.  I like Ambrosia Maple, but my only pick is the evidence of Ambrosia should all be arranged to flow in the same direction.  But that's just me.   Well done.

Good looking modification there Marcus.  I'm with you; I have built storage into machine stands that lack it or replaced them outright.  A footprint without storage is like a day without sunshine.

P.s. I also noticed no vent for make-up air in your router motor chamber.  I did the holes in the door like wdwerker mentions.

Very nice and functional.  However do you have any ventilation where the router is.  After a long routing session it may get very warm.

Good point! I completely forgot about that. Some air probably gets in from the door not being air-tight, but not enough. I'll drill some holes to let more through.
