I built the table some time ago using two pieces of MDF with a scrap of laminate glued to the surface. I used 1/4 inch plexiglass for the plate but it flexes too much and it’s on my list to replace. I’m trying to get dust collection set up in my shop so tonight I built a box with a dust port for the base of the router table. The base rests on the base of my table saw and helps support the router table. Next steps are to cut a miter track and build a fence. I want to build a fence that will attach to the face of my Incra.

Looks good. I have similar set up but failed to put supports for the table at first. Still have not got around to miter slots. Heck it has only been 17 years since I built it. LOL

Nicely done. I like the look and functionality. I may have to move my router over from the right side of my table saw to the left side.

Very nicely done. Nice large size. You might consider a “Y” adapter for the fence to tie into dust collection.
