Even more tips for dust collection

 

Router cabinet w/hose running to vacuum
Shop-vacuum exhaust helps clean, too

When I built my router cabinet, I made the compartment right under the router airtight, except for an inlet in the side of the cabinet and the opening for the router bit. Using an extra piece of hose, I connected the exhaust port of my shop vacuum to the cabinet inlet so the exhaust air blows up and out through the router-bit opening. The extra boost from the exhaust forces wood chips toward the collection hose, which attaches to the fence by the router bit and helps keep the worktop clean.
