Talking New Router Station Complete

At last my new router station is finally finished. All of my tools are General International so I thought why not make it look like the rest of my tools. The carcass and top are all mdf with laminate on both sides of the top. It has a 4 inch dust chute on the left side and inside it tapers down to the chute to direct chips etc to the port. There is so much suction at the center of the plate, I sometimes have a hard time lifting up some pieces.

Nice job on the table Collin. I like that fence

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Default Stunning Colin!

Colin top of the morning to you!

I like it, I like it a lot!

So much so, I'll laminate my recently made portable table, though it's nowhere near as sharp as your effort!

Please show us some more pics, i.e. of the dust chute.

Cheers,
Henry

Very well done let us know how it works, does it meet your expectations?

Very nice. I would like to see some details including what is behind the door and the rounded ends of the t track. Did you do this or did they come that way?
I am thinking about borrowing some of your ideas. Thanks for sharing.
