I’ve finally completed my router-table-in-the-table-saw-wing. This features a much upgraded fence over “v1”, and massive amounts of storage.
The marquee feature is Precision Router Lift from the video sponsor, Kreg. Thanks for making this happen Kreg!
Kreg’s lift allowed me to take full advantage of Timbecon’s new round router body (round body routers are rare in Australia).
I also took advantage of several Kreg tools that make cabinet making a breeze
- K4 Master Jig
- Cabinet Hardware Jig
- Concealed Hinge Jig (this is the hidden gem in Kregs library that really should get more attention than it does, in my opnion)
- Shelf Pin Jig
Part one covers the router table top, and the fence.
Part two covers the storage and dust collection.
Plans now available

Router Bit Holders
I mentioned that I’m using “router bit tidies” that were $2.50. They’re dovetailed to join together, and come in 1/4″ and 1/2″ shank flavours. I picked mine up from Timbecon
Alternatively, if you have a 3D printer, I took Rockler’s Router Bit Storage Insert and modelled up something you can use. I’d recommend tweaking it a bit to get it “right”, mine was more for proof of concept. You can find my files on GitHub. However, there are plenty of other designs on Thingiverse.
