Which do most router users recommend, cost wise and most efficient.

Thank for your advice

Welcome Darrell. There are so many choices in bench top tables it can be hard to choose just one. Many forum members own and love their Router Workshop tables; I am one. This table is the most practicle I have seen and is top quality. People have different priorities in the features they look for. Key features of this table are high pressure laminate on both sides of the table top, baltic birch construction for stregnth and stability, no limitations on accessory placement, ease of set up and use.

I agree with Mike.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

I got a cast iron table top made on a cabinet type work bench with casters, so it is easy to move around

I've been using the end of my table saw. Today I ordered a bosch 1181 router table.
Not knowing what I really need I thought this is a good table to start out with after much searching and reading you get a lot of bang for the buck. This table gets good reviews also and comes with a lot of attachments.
