Cutting Diagram:

Step 1

This Router Table Enclosure was specifically designed for use with the Kreg Router Table and Steel Stand (PRS1040). The design allows you to add form and functionality to your Kreg Router Table without having to disassemble it.

The first thing to do is cut the pieces for the storage unit as shown in the Cutting Diagram. Take extra care to ensure that you are cutting to the accurate lengths and making square cuts.

Step 2

After your parts are cut you can lay the base (Part ‘A’ ) into your assembled Kreg Router Table Steel Stand and check for fit.

Step 3

Next, you can build the boxes that house the bit drawers. Drill Pocket-Holes in the 4 Box Top and Bottoms (Parts 'C') and 4 Sides (Part 'B'). Spacing is not critical. The holes in Parts ‘C’ will be used to later attach the back. (Part ‘J’)

Step 4

Before you assemble the boxes. Attach your Full-Extension Slides to (Parts ‘C’) Attach them to the opposite side of the Pocket-Holes. The Pocket-Holes will be on the visible side of the Drawer Box when complete. The Drawer Slides need to be centered on the piece. There should be 1-3/8” on each side of the drawer slide. With that complete you can now begin to assemble your drawer boxes. Build both drawer boxes at this time.

Step 5

Now, with the 2 Drawer Boxes complete, place them into your Router Stand for dry fit. With your Router plunged down as far as it will go measure the distance between the Base (Part ‘A’) and the bottom of the Router. Finally, install your Divider piece (Part ‘D’) at this measurement with the Pocket-Holes facing down. The 3” Driver Bit is recommended for this because of the narrow spacing.

Step 6

It’s time to put a hole in the Back (Part ‘J’) for vacuum attachment.

Step 7

Now you can attach the Back to the carcass assembly using the Pocket-Holes that you drilled into the Drawer Box Tops and Bottoms.

Step 8

With the back on you can now drill a hole to accept the hole for the Router power cord.

Step 9

Now it’s time to assemble the Bit Drawers. Start by drilling Pocket-Holes into the 4 Drawer Top and Bottoms (Parts ‘F’) and the 2 Bit Shelf’s (Part ‘H’) Now you can drill holes for the Bits in the Bit Shelf’s with a Drill Press. Drill these holes on the opposite side of the Pocket-Holes to the pattern of your desire based on your Router Bit collection. Next, attach the Bit Shelf and Drawer Top and Bottoms to the Drawer Front and Backs (Part ‘G’) for both drawers.

Step 10

Now it’s time to attach the mating piece of the Full Extension Drawer slides to the Drawer Top & Bottoms (Parts ‘F’).

Step 11

With that done you can now attach your Bit Drawer Faces (Parts ‘K’) and your Cabinet / Router Drawer Face * (Part ‘L’) Slide your assembly into the Router Table Stand and secure to the bottom with a few screws.

*Note: The Cabinet / Router Drawer Face is two pieces edgejoined together. Reference Cutting Diagram.

Step 12

Now you can build the accessories storage for each side of the stand. Start by building your frame (Parts ‘I’, ‘N’). Drill Pocket-Holes to attach the frame together and also to attach the frame to the side of the cabinet. Once assembled and in place, you can attach the Peg Board.

Step 13

One last step is to seal up the gaps left underneath the Router Table Top. You can use packing foam or you can attach a piece of hardboard to seal it all up.
