A router table can be as simple as a piece of plywood with a hole in it and a router attached to the bottom. I made one using plans from Woodsmith 30 years ago (one of my first woodworking projects) and still use it when I need a larger work area than the cheap benchtop Rockler model I bought at a garage sale a few years ago. I simply clamp it to the edge of my workbench or put it on top of a Workmate. It is made so that a fence is attached through groves cut in the top so that you can clamp it down with wing nuts but for a temporary one you could simply clamp a board in place.

BTW, I now attach the router using 3 of these toggle clamps from HF.
