Do you prefer to build a table or can you see yourself building one?

Hi Scott. No, it's not necessary to buy a Skil table for it. You will probably need to drill new mounting holes in it for your Skil, but that is the only difficult thing. Just make sure you have your router centered in the mounting plate when you drill the new holes.

or by imbeciles who really mean it.

I'm probably not that far advanced yet. Would feel more comfortable buying one right now.

If you've got a builders square and a saw, you can build one. I made mine out of 2x4s.

Cheaper than buying, and you can make it however you want. I didn't think I could either, but these guys and gals here are very helpful.

Does anyone here have some plans that I could go by? Or have any recommendations?

Thanks!

This is the one I made:

Building A Low-Cost Sturdy Work Bench From 2x4's And OSB

Instead of the OSB top, use two pieces of 3/4" MDF, laminate, and a router plate.

I think it's the simplest design out there. I'm going to try Norm's (Abrams) table in a month or so.
