Default Norm's Table

I have Norm's router table built to the point of cutting the access for the router mounting plate in the table top. The instructions locate the plate center 9.25 inches from the front. The top is 26 X 36 overall. My question is why mount the router so close to the front? Why not mount it further back and make more use of the table for work support?

I maybe missing something, so for those who have built this table I would appreciate feedback whether you followed directions or placed the mounting plate more towards the rear of the table.

HI Scott

Need to do a bit of math,,26 div. 2 = 13 for your center point so using 9.25 is right on the button,,most of the time you will want to use the fence on the table top ,so to say you want some room for the fence to move back from the bit..

But you can set the fence up so you can flip it around and use it from the back side of the cabinet for more room on the top..
