I have been involved in various levels of woodworking since 1957. I have 3 Craftsman routers, and one metal router table, cheap version with a removable fence, but no miter slot or hold-downs other than home-made jigs. I have been considering patterns and plans for a new table, and I will likely opt to build one myself, with some purchased accessories.
After working in borrowed garage space and basements for most of my life, I finally have a dedicated, stand-alone shop, which has all of the essential features, but only one major shop asset in the new 10" Craftsman Hybrid saw.
Current project is refacing all of the cabinets in our large kitchen.
