▲ Nylon sleeves make it easy to slip router bits in and out of the drawer.
This storage unit provides a handy place to set my router. But what I like even better is the drawer underneath that lets me safely store my router bits, see photo at right.
To hold even a large plunge router, this storage unit is a bit deeper and taller than the other units. But aside from that, the basic design is almost the same.
The sides (J) are rabbeted at each end to accept the top (K) and bottom (L), see Fig. 4. And a rabbet in the back edge holds the hardboard back (M) and a pair of short hanging brackets.
shelf. But one difference in this storage unit is there's a dado in each side to hold a shelf (N), see Fig. 4a. Besides supporting the
router, the shelf forms an opening for the drawer.
curved profile. All that's left to do before assembling this unit is to cut a curved profile on the front edge of each side, see patttern below.
drawer. Now you're ready to add the drawer that holds the router Kb,, bits. It's a simple box that fits the opening at the bottom of the storage unit.
The front and back (0) of the drawer are just pieces of3/*" plywood, see Fig. 5. A deep rabbet holds the bottom (P) of the drawer, see Fig. 5a. And shallow rabbets on each end accept the hardboard sides (Q), see Fig. 5b.
These sides are dished out along the top edge to make it easy to remove a bit (or put one back).
nylon sleeves. To hold the bits, I used nylon sleeves that I picked up at the hardware store, see photo in margin. The sleeves are glued into holes in the drawer bottom. (I used "instant" glue.)
