Lightbulb new to forum

New to forum ,
been a wood worker for awhile but never really dove in 100% till now
I'm tooling up my 2 car garage with various tools , not a deep pockets guy so I'm buying quality tools slowly & look for the best bang for the buck , I buy parts ,bits, power tools that I know I'll need when I see them up for sale .
Right now I'm building speaker cabinets , large Klipsch Heritage style horn loaded DIY speakers for my 9 channel Home Theater .
I have 9 cabinets that I built a couple years but I want to rebuild them now .
I don't have a table saw & rally don't want a small contractor one & don't have room for a large one , I do have Festool TS55 REQ , with the 55" & 118" rails , Festool Domino 500 , Porter Cable 890 router with the plunge & "D" handles , 3 or 4 different Dewalt cordless drills/impact ,a Rockler mini plunge saw , drill press , floor stander , Dewalt 12" miter saw, Dewalt 12" bench planer & a couple of cheap jigsaws & orbital & belt sanders .

I have a motor for a Porter-Cable 7518 that I just found on sale & have been a massing router bits slowly over the last year
the PC motor is for a planned Ho'made router table with a Incra LS & wonder fence .
I'm in the process to fabbing a Ho'made Festool style MFT table . using some of the 8020 rails as a frame .
What brought me here is I am looking for any one who has done their own router table with the LS Incra system , I don't want to reinvent the wheel here & am looking to avoid any "Rookie" mistakes but I do want the Router table to be able to do large panels

Welcome to the forum Mike. I built my router table and have an incra top. Don't know how to insert a picture here so will send you a private message.

Hello Mike, welcome to the community....

Take a look at this thread:

Just a huge number of great ideas for tables from members of the forum. Post #10 is a few pictures of my table, using the LS fence/wander fence/Jessem Mit-R-Slider. The table is about 4 years old now and feels like Ive had it forever. The one big change I would make would be to have had the table top stick out over the edges enough to allow for clamping. When not using the table for routing, it doubles as an assembly table. I can remove the Incra fence entirely. The back side incorporates some t-track and a Kreg pocket hole jig clamping plate. The downside for you perhaps would be the fact she has a pretty good sized footprint. Since a tablesaw might be on your list, a hybrid cabinet saw with a router table wing might be something to consider.
