Default Rockler Router Table Enclosure

Hi folks. I am new to the forum, but have been impressed with the advice that has been posted. I recently purchased an open Rockler Router Table and 7000 series Porter Cable Router. I wondered if anyone has built a wooden enclosure for this table and if they mounted the plywood on the outside of the metal legs and used a vacumn port. Just looking for some ideas rather than "reinventing the wheel." Thank you in advance.

If yours is something like the stand in "Package #1"

Router Table Package #1 Plus Rockler Stand, with FREE $50 Rockler Gift Card! - Rockler Woodworking Tools

You'll probably need to install a shelf a few inches below the lowest point of the router travel, and add vertical partitions to limit the air volume a bit. Then, make sure there is sufficient air intake so as not to "starve" the vac.

Take a look at their "Dust Bucket" for the approximate relative size.
