Default Just joined the forum

Hello everyone. I am an intermediate woodworker and looking forward to using the forum as a learning and communication tool.

I recently purchased a Kreg PRS1020 router table . It's currently mounted on a temporary stand I previously used for an older router table. Now I want to build a dedicated cabinet, with good dust collection, to store router bits and router equipment. My shop space is somewhat limited, so want it on a good set of lockable rollers that will let me easily store it out of the way when not in use.

Any suggestions on a design that will readily adapt to this table? I haven't done any measuring yet, but note that there are angle iron stiffening braces on either side of the mounting plate that need to be taken into account with the cabinet.

Hello Terry! Welcome to the forum. The first thing that I would do is to make sure that You have room for router bits, wrenches and anything else that You use on the table. That would include push sticks, and some jigs that You figure You will be using. Don't worry about having all the spaces filled, or ready for your tools, and jigs. But figure room for it as best as possibal As for dust collection, I know that Oak Park.com has a plate that is set up for dust extraction on the plate. I don't like to pull air into the router cavity at the top, but rather close off the router so as to protect it, and yet add air ports to draw air fron the table. I havent done it to My table, but I have considered adding a filter to pull clean ait through the router cavity and it would be across from the vacumn port. The top can be made to fit in the top and the router so not to waste room, but also to help inclose the drawer and door areas from dust. I know that those who know me will say,I haven't heard or seen anything like that from You. But this is My hope to do it on mine. There are My ideas, Hope You can put them to use.

Default hello, it's my first message

Hello, it's 8 o clock (AM) our grand son (just arrived yesterday) was very busy this night (snow is falling down) on Picardie where we dwell...) his parents were on the first floor and us on the ground floor, near the young boy's bedroom...!
Sorry to tell you about the family, but it's not very easy for me to write about my shop and things I have donne. Sorry also for my mistakes.
Is it possible for me to join photos to my messages?

Howard, thanks for the ideas, especially those on dust collection/control. Some good ones for my future cabinet.
