    Default Router cabinet with vacuum

    Built this router cabinet last winter. Wire so when turned on vacuum turns on.
    Saves allot of dust. Insert fence for various bits. Bit Storage. Stuff drawer at bottom.

    Thanks AKfish & stid

    From the book "router magic" by bill hylton page212. **$16 at** http://www.grizzly.com/products/Router-Magic-Book/G6474
    modified some to fit what I had to work with but basically same table.
    I added hydraulic lift rams to help lift the top & let it down slow after pinching my fingers a few times. Top pretty heavy.
    Harbor freight router mounting plate. ** http://images.harborfreight.com/manu...4999/94331.pdf
    Bought some good bits online, too.
    Wanted to make raised panel doors & drawers for my workbench,
    so I needed a table. Joined router forums & got tons of help. Great guys there & many years of experience & willing to help newbe's.
    see build there (bogydave) http://www.routerforums.com/table-mo...-progress.html

    Highly recommend the book . I also got allot of jigs & ideas from it.
