I have a router table of sorts but ,due to my lack of space, set up is involved. I had piece of scrap melamine and this started out as a simple project. Just inlet for the insert and a couple rabbets on the ends to hang over the rails. This would have been all that was needed if I used bearing bits only. That’s when it dawned on me that the overhang would impede the saw fence. The solution involved a somewhat complex “tenon” on one end and then latches underneath on the other end with some shimming to make it flush with the table. It should work well for the small, quick router need.
