Rockler Router Table Cabinet

Rockler Shows Off New Router Table Cabinet

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware just came out with a new Router Table Cabinet constructed from galvanized steel. It has twin doors, a built-in system for adding a drawer or shelves for storage, and a dust collection system.Rockler works this into the cabinet itself. The cabinet takes nearly any conventional router. It produces a poor man’s shaper, creating an effective workstation with both room for storage, and also internal dust collection.

Rockler also provides options for attaching economical shelves and drawers. You can purchase (or better yet—make) these separately. What do you get? A complete router station that houses your tool while also storing router bits, jigs, sanding supplies and other tools. As you’d expect, Rockler placed pre-drilled holes in the top of the steel cabinet. This makes it compatible with accessories from all Rockler and name brand router tables.

Rockler Router Table Features

Other unique features of the all-steel Rockler Router Cabinet include:

  • Convenient internal dust bucket
    Provides a cleaner work surface. It creates a vacuum below the table to significantly reduce the amount of dust and wood chips generated when routing.
  • Recessed 4″ dust port
    Located in the back of the cabinet, this minimizes the clearance needed when connecting to a dust collection system.
  • Heavy-duty construction
    Gives the cabinet the weight and stability of a stationary shaper. Minimizes vibration and increasing the chances of getting consistent cutting results.

This new product seems like it would go well with the Benchdog Cast Iron Router Table Top (25574) which would give it a truly gutsy work surface. Drawers or shelves may be added with the purchase of Drawer Accessory Kits, (which you can buy separately). Complementing its many conveniences, the cabinet is also pre-tapped for adding an optional Router Safety Switch.
