Dimensions: Dimensions shown above. Build to suit your router table top.

Shopping List:

1 Sheet 3/4″ plywood ripped into two 19″ x 8 foot long strips
(remaining scrap can be ripped into 5 1/2″ wide strip and used to replace some of the 1×6 boards – if you do this, may I suggest altering to 18″ widths so you can get two 5 1/2″ strips out of scrap plywood? You’ll still need to buy a 1×6)

1 – 1×3 @ 8 feet long
2 – 1×2 @ 8 feet long

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.

Step 1

So the tricky part here is the little drawers. You’ll need to do some prepwork to get the drawers in before building – because once built, there’s no way you are going to get a drill in the tiny space to attach drawer slides. So do a test layout of the top center piece as shown here. You’ll want to attach the 1×3 …

Step 2

Build your router bit box as shown above. The 14 1/2″ piece is for drilling out holes for your router bit collection ….

Step 3

Remembering that the project gets a face frame, install the drawer slides cabinet member on the project BEFORE construction. Test the drawer for fit before you glue anything.

Step 4

Once you are happy with the drawer fit, you can add the sides and bottom.

Step 5

And then these are for attaching drawer slides to later on.

Step 6

Now build the face frame and attach to front of cabinet.

Step 7

And then finish off small drawers with faces.

Step 8

Build two large drawers. Check your overall widths – drawers should be made overall 1″ less than the opening to allow for standard 1/2″ clearance drawer slides. Check for square.

Step 9

Install drawers 3/4″ inset in cabinet to allow for drawer face.

Step 10

Attach drawer face to drawers with even 1/8″ gap on all sides.

Step 11

And then add the caster wheels.

Step 12

Cut out holes for router and attach router table top.

Step 13

Finishing Instructions

Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
