I ruined my first top with "chip-out" on the laminate top and learned to cut everything on the MDF first then route out the necessary areas. The first thing I built with the table was a raised panel door for the table. I thought it would be an appropriate first project for the router table. The table is quite expensive to make but I don't think you'll find a better table anywhere. I put my table on a mobile stand (Rockler) because I have a small workshop. See pictures attached.
Good luck.
Bill
Simply beautiful !
I'd take that table over a bench dog steel top ! Excellent work !

Very well done Bill. This will be my next project. I could use the storage space and a better looking solution like yours.

Thanks for sharing.

UHMW Plastic Sheets and Strips

BigJimAK The plastic used by TRW for their fence material is ultra-high molecular weight plastic (UHMW). If you want to buy one you can go to Oak Park Enterprises Ltd. - Router Table, Router, Router Bits, Router Jigs, Router Accessories: Home who sells the straight fences as well as the whole TRW tables (and provides free plans for their table). You can also buy the fence with a 1/16" offset between the infeed and outfeed side if you want to use it for jointing. The material is also available in bulk online, if you want to machine your own. UHMW plastic isn't cheap but its very durable and slippery stuff; good for fencing.

marcusking What about the white plastic jigs that they use as a fence on the router table? Anyone know where to get those? They seem pretty handy.

Mike I really like the "bit at a glance" idea Lee. Is this table is based on a Woodsmith design? I am building two of these right now and it looks very familiar.
