Rand,

I have never seen a piece of Plexiglass that thick! Must weigh a ton!

That was my first thought… a router table… Then…

That is so thick, you’d be waisting a lot of Router Bit space coming out the top… unless you would be able to Route-out a good amount to mount the Router directly to the PG… I think if you tried to cut-out a space for a Mounting Plate, it would end up weakening it… I really don’t know…

48×48 is really too big for a router table… sure you could make one but, most of it would be wasted space…
A more realistic size would be 24×24 or 24×36…

You could cut it up into smaller pieces… 4 pieces 24×24… or 2 pieces 24×36… and experiment…
I think I would be happy with a 24×24 size… would be easier to clamp stuff to it, etc.

I think you still want to conserve on space don’t you?

Now, for my friendly advice, I could use a piece 24×24… LOL (No, just kidding… I have a router table)

Just my thoughts…

Have fun playing with it!

Just be careful cutting that stuff… a little heat will mess you up FAST literally causing your cut to melt into it’self making it useless. If you could cut it FAST on a band saw… might be better… don’t know for sure.

Thanks for keeping us updated…
