Default Portable table

I have just about finished building my table top and fence system for my portable router table. Now I need to build an open frame or box to sit the top on to has anyone got any good pictures, ideas or tips etc.

Im thinking something similar to the bench dog or Kreg bench top router tables but if anyone has any other good ideas let me know.

Hi Chris - check out the MLCS portable table with the folding legs:
Rock Solid and Portable Benchtop Router Table
The have (or had) two versions of the legs, the ones shown and some a bit heavier duty. I've been using the version shown for a couple of years and it is sturdier than it looks. I don't think the leg sets are listed seperately but If you give them a call you may be able to buy them that way. Woodcraft had folding leg sets on closeout awhile back but I don't find them listed anymore.
IMO, to be truly portable it does need to fold up. Otherwise just downsize a cabinet plan.You could also probably come up with your own folding leg plan.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Cheers guys but I think the folding leg idea will be too flimsy. Im think more a solid frame wood or metal. Maybe a box type like the benchdog table is another idea.

I will have a scan thru the members tables see what I can see cheers
