I vote for making your own. That way you get what you want, not what someone else things you want, it's less expensive, it's more fun, and you don't feel bad about making changes to it if you feel like it. I don't buy much of anything, if I can make it myself instead.
I am not a fan of router lifts. I much prefer a router plate you can just pop out, router and all, make what ever changes you need to do, or even swap in another plate and router with a different bit, and just pop it in. I've got 5 routers, each screwed to a homemade router plate, and I can change one for another in maybe 30 seconds, definitely less than a minute.

Some days, the supply of available curse words is insufficient to meet my demands.
Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
