Dovetailed Router Bit Cabinet
Dovetail keys at the corners reinforce the joints to make a stronger cabinet. Plus, a clear plastic door panel lets you see what’s inside.
Router bits and neckties have a number of things in common. It doesn’t take long before you accumulate a sizable number of each. Quality ones are fairly expensive. And most of the time, there’s really no good way to store them. Since I prefer router bits to neckties, I built a storage cabinet to help organize and protect my router bit collection. As you can see, the design for this cabinet isn’t elaborate. However, the dovetail keys and a Plexiglas door provide enough of a challenge to make building this router bit cabinet quite interesting.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
