How to make a router table cabinet.

Posted by on Mar 6, 2014 in Video | No Comments

This video follows on from those on making a router table and fence. It shows how to make a cabinet for the table to sit on. The cabinet includes an extraction box and uses a car jack for rise and fall, especially useful if you do not have the ability to adjust from above. Since making the video I have found that the extraction box is not very efficient, perhaps my dust extraction sustem is not strong enough. I have found the router bearings clog with dust, so now I do not use the box instead I just plug the hose into the router extraction port.

For technical reasons the video is in two parts. The first covers layout and jointing, the second glue up and an explanation of the various facilities.

A jpeg of the cabinet drawing is below click here to download  sketchup drawings and excel  cut list.

In the fullness of time I will post a further video on making drawers for the cabinet, but don’t hold your breath!
