    I built a cabinet that mounts under the end of the router which houses the PC and control box. I, too, have a shelf inside which I have compartmentalized tray to hold the router bits and other essentials.

    I took the easy way out for bits, i bought two of these and screwed them to the wall right above my table. Works for me.

    I have a drawer cabinet for the accessories and a kind of Rolodex storage for the bits. Although, I should have made it bigger it is already full..

    The dividers are captive with dowels but they can flip back and forth to make each row more accessible. The bits usually don't touch except the real big ones like 1 or 1.5" diameter. There are frontal slots at the bottom of the holes for the bits so that dust or chips can fall out and don't clog the hole.
