Double Router Table

I add a big improvement to my shop with a Double Router Table

In the workflow and Day to Day, I am constantly looking to make my shop better. That and I am probably clinically insane, BUT! That being said. I have had a back wall in my shop that was clutter and a dead zone for almost a year. It was time to improve it. I came across a super cheap IKEA counter top ( yes i know i could've made my own) and I decided to turn it into a Double Router Table with open storage underneath. Check it out!
