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.
