After moving to a new shop with plenty of room, I finally decided to build a router table. Nothing fancy, just a laminated top with 2x lumber for the base. I did at least mortise and tenon the base together. Glue up and laminating was a bit of a hassle, it was the middle of the winter and significantly too cold in the shop for such activities. Thankfully, the wife was gone for an evening so I was able to sneak inside to get everything put together. Note to self, find a heating source for the shop before next winter!

Nice job. That should provide many years of service.

I really like the large table surface and the open design! You got me thinking that this would be a good idea in my small 2 car garage because your table could double as a light duty work table by putting a plywood cover over the table when it’s not in use. Also a large drawer could easily be added for storage.
Nice job on this and thank you for sharing!

Very nicely done. Maybe use as an out-feed table also?

-- Norman - I never never make a mistake, I just change the design.
