Default Project Complete

I finally finished my first project from my new router table set-up (Rockler top, Triton 3-1/4 hp with a Router Raiser and shop-built cab.

My daughter saw the cabinet for $695 (unfinished $495) and thought I could make it cheaper. I did: $146.00 (total), including over-travel 100 lb drawer slides. The cabinet is designed to house a cat litter box. I modified the cat entry and also put in a removable panel - one for the cat, the other to use the peice without a cat. Rotating knobs on the inside facilitate easy change-out with a rabbit in place of the panel groove and works just fine.

About 12 hours (minus the two draw-making mistakes - made them backward!.... not once, but twice - grrrrrrr!). As with any prototype, other peices will take less time.

I love (finally) having my own router table set-up. Yet to be finished, left of the router compartment will house a three teir router bit drawer, to its right, will house three drawers. Sliding Lexan will face everthing along with the two bigger drawers below and sliders for the router compartment itself. Certainly nothing fancy, but exceptionally functional.

Great project! I can honestly say that I have never seen anything like that before.

It's great when you can justify the cost of your tools in one project like that.

Keep up the good work,

Boy that is nice. My cats only get big turkey basting pans for their cat potty.

Excellet job on both projects. That is some very fine cabinet door work you are laying on us so I would say you and the router table are getting along well

Very well done, very well done indeed. Your work is very fine. How do you plan to finish it? I take it there is some more work to be done on the router table; I can tell that will be equally well done.
