Default Router table construction

Dear friends,
I recently bought a new Bosch router combo (1617EVS) package, and I'm wanting to make my own table for this particular router. I currently have a 48"X 24" workbench that I acquired from salvage. This bench is practically new, with a 1 1/2" maple hardwood top. I'm thinking this would be the "cats meow" for a nice router table, but since I'm just a beginner at this stuff, I'm looking for some advice as to the feasability of this task. Any suggestions?



Thanks,
j_ls

By replacing the base plate of the router with a router table mounting plate, and inletting that into the table/bench, your objective is entirely feasible. Note that you may need to flatten the surface of the bench first, and doing that before the hole for the router is cut will be much easier.
