    Hey all,

    I am seeing quite a few guys who take an existing steel stand for their router tables and simply build their cabinet within it – seems like a pretty logical thing to do…. Don’t know why I didn’t think of it before now…

    I am also impressed with Pop’s Jessem setup (scroll down a little to his comment) – http://lumberjocks.com/topics/23047
    He did the same thing – built the cabinet within the stand… No idea why I didn’t realize this/think of this before…

    I think they do it because they realize after the fact that the stands are pretty much useless after you use it for a while. It’s the fence and top that make the table.

    The more I see that incra fence the more intrigued I am with it, especially for an MFT/3 top.

    I am not happy with my router table setup at the moment because there is a lot of wasted space. I think a full cabinet like the ones in John’s post would be perfect. The slide out looks like an idea I will have to steal!

    I am wondering if people ever have sagging issues with their router table tops and so that is a benefit of the steel stands??? Otherwise, I agree… Just custom make your own stand – and have it leave room for dust collection, an emergency switch, l-boxxes and router bits 🙂

    If you have a rock solid top and insert then your totally right. One thing I didn’t account for when I did my setup is the amount of dust that would develop under the table, especially when I am using a spiral bit.

    That is where I am thinking this guy comes in handy:

    I like that idea except I have to remove my router constantly to change the bits and I think this would be cumbersome.

    those are some pretty interesting cabinets. I like them and that gives me ideas for Kevin I want to build. The only problem I see is it will take up space don’t have. I think I’m just going to build one into the table I have already. Has anyone thought about using an old inner tube around the router for dust collection? It may be an option of work out well and you could just pull away the inner tube we need to clean it out or change router bits.
