There are several horizontal router table construction projects on YouTube. One is a Stumpy Nubs (James Hamilton) :

Another, similar to one I fantasize building is an Izzy Swan project:

For those that are interested, this is the end-on view that Biagio asked for, showing the pivot point of the plate, on the left, and the small arc slot and tightening knob on the right. The height adjustment bolt turns in a block of wood attached to the plate, and the end of the bolt contacts a metal plate attached to the carcass.

Basically the same method of height adjustment I used except that I took an angle bracket and drilled and threaded it instead.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks Rob I didn’t realize it pivoted , and I don’t know why I couldn’t have thought of that . As I mentioned I’m really liking the simplicity of the design, and it would do the job I want perfectly.
Also I could easily attach a feather board to stop the board from trying to lift .
Should be able to get a very clean cut this way.

Just took a closer look at the first pic and noticed the tenon . What a great way to make tenons .
I may have to make a more permanent version of this with a mitre slot
