I hope I am posting this correctly. Anyway, here is the router table that I just built.
The pulls for the drawers are a nice touch. I may have to steal that idea when I get to my table. Mine will be very similar to yours. I have the same table top, fence, and a similar lift.

I have been restoring an old car so I hope to get to my table this spring.

Thanks for sharing. You did a nice job!!!

Nice Job!

After two months finally finished it.
It looks like you started with a kit. Did that make things easier?

And wood floors in your shop? I am jealous. Most of us are in a garage standing all day on hard concrete.

I also see signs of a central vacuum system. Growing greener.........:bad:

Looks like you have a great looking table that will provide a nice size work area, wonderful, repeatable accuracy with the fence combination, ample storage, and low dust production. What else could you ask for?

Nice job and thanks for taking time to post some photos for us. Gives all of us some ideas for our own builds.

My Last Router Table

My last router table. I have had a few. I took all my past needs and looked at the best pictures on the web and came up with this. It has a large work surface and fence for cabinet making but also incorporates my Incra fence for small box making.
I made it the same height as my table saw so I can use it as an extension table when sawing sheet goods.
I also put one in my table saw to be able to set up both at the same time for things like rail and stile doors and panels
I put the T-track in that one also for the Incra fence.
The router table has a PC 3-1/2 HP router motor and the saw table has a Bosch 1617EAVS.
The hardest part was my Benchdog lift was broken so I had to make the cabinet without a router table. I don't have a dado blade so I routed all the dados by hand.
After the cabinet was put together I used it to make the drawers and door.
By the way. I have since repaired my benchdog lift. It is about 10 years old. I called benchdog who is now owned by Rockler. They were great. It took them about a week and half to find my old style screw lift. They sent it to me free. I hhad to only pay the shipping.

Well james thank you it is about 10 years old and my wife did not think i should put a router table on top. But it was a good learning curve, have used it to build a lot doors since.
Love my hobby it so great to take a flat board and turn it in some useful and beautiful
