Thanks very much Bob,
What a great example of taking the best of two quite different philosophies. Norm's NYW router table (which Rockler markets) is a fine example of the sophisticated, complicated philosophy, and Bob and Rick's Router Workshop table is the epitome of simplicity. Actually I have to wonder whether this video is really a modification of Norm's table or whether it is an independent invention of the Router Workshop table. The table described in this video also has very important consideration for proper air flow around the router motor, something many router table supporting cabinet designs do not take into account. (I think Cassandra recently made this point.)
I am very interested in seeing what the creator of this video does with fences.

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."

- Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
