Router table

I could not find a router table that I liked. I wanted a high fence and long table. I finally decided I could build want I wanted “cheaper” than buying one. (Don’t tell my wife I may have gone over budget a little) It is 4 foot by 28 inch. I used Maple plywood for sides. Maple for faceframe and trim.
The top is two layers of 3/4 MDF laminated.
I ran 4" hose directly to the fence and under the table for dust collection.
I ran into an issue when I realized I didnt properly plan for the switch and hinges on the center panel so I decided to simply add a lip on the cabinet door face and install magnets for a catch.

I’m where you were prior to your excellent build here. What you designed and built is EXACTLY, well almost, what I’m desiring. Any chance there might be plans, sketches, notes that. I could purchase or try and talk you out of? Much appreciate anything you can sell me or provide.

Stay safe. . .
