Jeff and Warren, when I started on the forums I had just built a very decent table from the plans in ShopNotes #1. You can see this table design on the PBS show: "Woodsmith shop." The thing that got me interested in routing was the Router Workshop show. Watching Bob and Rick build many interesting projects with ease inspired me. The main theme of the show was to "Keep it Simple". Bob maintained that complex fences with special attachments, T tracks and the like actually slowed down the routing process. Rick talked me into trying the Router Workshop methods and I would never switch back. The reason is simple; I would rather spend my time routing than on set ups. Their system allows jobs like making box joints to set up quick and accurate. Proof that their designs work are shown by the copies marketed by Woodpeckers, Peachtree and Rockler. When I became Senior Moderator I felt obligated to try as many routers and tables as possible so I could provide first hand information about them to forum members. To this day I have not seen a table that surpasses the quality of the Router Workshop table. The design seems very spartan at first look but this table will handle every routing job I can imagine. Lightweight but very sturdy, unlimited fence clamping possibilities and on board bit storage. The exclusive Vac-u-plate system which captures the majority of sawdust and dross with no hose above the table to fight with. All this for under $200. To me this is real value for your money. Plans are available if you want to build your own version. I highly recommend this table and many forum members agree. Give it some consideration.
