If you like the features, of any table, and own a jigsaw. Don’t let table thickness, and or material hold you back if price, features or other are a plus to you. Flip any top over, glue and screw a sheet of 3/4” plywood, you can use cheap CDX for this, it’s nit a working surface, just support. Once the glue dries, remove the screws. Use the jigsaw to cut out a hole large enough to get the router through, and go. New improved, heavy weight top. Hint, Prior to screwing the ply to the finished top, map out the T track, etc, and miss them. I have an old Rockler HPL top, which by itself gets terrible reviews for sag, and after almost 20 years of use, it’s still all good.

Only possible disadvantage is it’s 3/4” taller now, but with most router tables they could be 14” taller for my likes.
