This is a custom design I use to build. I really like it because it is very solid. The legs fasten to the skirt and the "L" design makes for a very stable base. I made these out of red oak since I liked the way it looked. I also wrapped the table in red oak for more stability. The top is 1 1/2" thick mdf with an acrylic insert. The fence is my own custom design. I decided not to go with metal. I used confirmat screws from McFeely's to join the mdf together and reinforced it with glue. It has never gone out of 90 degrees. I also put on a couple of bit holders on the back side of the fence. I figured this was wasted space, so why not. Both sizes of 1/4" and 1/2" to handle all my router bits. And if your wondering about the blue laminate, why not? Who says all router tables have to be white?
