Default Two new router tables

Just completed two new router tables starting with NYW plans than modified. Thought I would post pictures and an explanation of the completed tables. The blue one has a Benchdog cast iron top with a Benchdog prolift that has had a digital readout added and a PC7518 router . The green one has a commercial MDF and formica top that was altered to accept a Benchdog aluminum plate and a Triton TRC001 router. As you can see in the pictures, there are four drawers for bits (26 per drawer), three drawers for wrenches and small miscellany and three drawers with full extension slides for larger items. The cabinets are mounted on total lock casters and constructed from 3/4" MDF. The completed cabinets are VERY heavy but roll easily.
Enjoyed building these cabinets - hope you enjoy the pictures.

Nice work, Gary.

Do you build these as Christmas gifts?

If I did, you probably couldn't afford it.

The box is a digital readout that has been added to the Benchdog prolift. It reads to .0005 inches.

Well, there went my week! This was going to be the week I unveiled the premier woodworking project of my life.....a new router table. After seeing those truly great pieces of work I can assure you that I have now cancelled my plans and had deleted the photos I had so carefully taken.
Thanks a lot pal!!.........Ha. Great work. Just great.

Birch I do not get that. Please post your project. If you feel yours is not as nice as the router tables in this post so what, you still put in the time and effort and your effort is worth just as much as anyone's.

Be proud of what you did and do not compare your stuff to others. Compare your items to your own previous projects and if it is better than your previous projects you did well.

Even the maker of this router table may see another and feel his is not as nice. You can always find someone or something better. That should not detract from having pride in your own work, even if it is not as good as some others.
