after I got through making the drawers for my MLCS router table I was looking at my junked up Jessem table and decided to do the same for it.

Put the drawers in and found that the top one was too shallow for my router bits so i knocked the top off and extended it up 1 1/2"

A man after my own heart. Build it, find it dont work, modify it, modify it, and suddenly it does work.
LMAO. If you notice in the first picture of the box there is a cut-out filled in on the bottom. Well that started out as the top. When I tried to slide the box in over the front angle it hung up on the router lift. So I cut a hole for that and the box went in and dropped down 2" and I lost 2 " of room inside. So I took the front angle off turned it over to be upside down and then I could just slide the box into the stand. I still didn't have room in the top drawer and since now I had some room at the top, I figured if I raised the top ,it would allow the bits room , but it didn't.

Nice job, Herb. I like the way you turned one table part to gain in height. What are you gonna do about the upside down JessEm logo? ;)

All I cans say is you do the most beautiful and functional woodworking. Makes me wish I had your talent for woodworking.

Thanks for the compliment. I am getting good at covering my mistakes. These are pretty basic cabinets, a box, drawer guides, drawer boxes, face frame, drawer fronts, and pulls.

Nice build Herb. If you keep this up in another year or two you might be a real woodworker. :wink::laugh2:

So why did you get another router table?

I have always had 2, they come in handy to make a setup on each one. the sliding table is nice for making cross cut edge profiles.

I also have 2 Table Saws, 3 drill presses,2 band saws.



I suppose that some of you are wondering why the sides have rabbets at the top. Well that is another mistake. When I was rabbeting the side panels on the TS, I rabbeted the tops instead of the back.

It came in handy though later, when I extended the sides up I utilized it as a lap joint for the strips I used to raise the top.
