This sturdy router table has an MDF and plastic laminate top that will stay flat and stable despite extremes of humidity or rough treatment. With its large, smooth top and easy-to-adjust fence, this router table is the perfect way to expand your arsenal of shop tools. Having built my own router table some years ago, using an old table for the base and a superstructure similar to this plan, I am now upgrading to the excellent plan that I bought from Tauton Press some time ago.
I cannot see the paid content of this site, so if you want to sell plans you need to tell us something about the plans.

The base and undercarriage for the tabletop were made from a couple 2x4s left over from a home project, all connected with screws and glue.

Built upon a rigid mobile base, the table’s cabinet provides plenty of storage for all your bits, wrenches, and routers. Mike, the guy that made the video probably doesnt want to endorse the product but to focus on his plans. A side-mounted paddle switch means I don't have to reach under the table to turn the router on or off. The main modification I would make is to include a track for a miter gague which would improve the table's versatility.

Up top, the business end of this router table is set over a system of thick maple stringers that will keep the tabletop sag-free for years to come, and allows for easy access to your router motor. I saved money by making it out of leftover construction lumber and a few castoff parts from friends, and put money where it counted most: a router lift. I offset the router lift insert a bit toward the infeed side and toward the back, thinking it would be good to have a little extra room to handle large workpieces.
I haven't used the table in real life yet, so I'll have to let you know whether the idea was successful or whether I just outsmarted myself. The design, which I picked up from John White's "Ultimate Router Table" (FWW #153), allows me to replace the insert easily when it gets worn out.
