New Router Table
  Re: New Router Table by Terry W (After many years of ...)
The table looks great!

Been away from the forum for a while, used to be known as Jeff B, but couldn't get the old logon to work.

I recently learned something new about router tables - adding a clean-air intake vent for the router.  Prevents the motor from sucking dust into it. Thought you might be interested.

Nice work. I just [almost] completed my build of the same cabinet with a lot of modifications to the original plan (still waiting for the rear dust port fittings).

Since I had a top (two, actually), I was able to use the router/cabinet for the face frame, drawers, etc. while still building.

Great addition. Good for you!

If so, what have you done to mitigate that?

Not really. The back is secured with a long piano hinge so it does not shift.  Plus the total weight of top (two layers of MDF plus the router) makes the top pretty heavy and vibration free.
