It looks pretty good. The slot across the table isn't necessary unless you want to use it for feather boards. For mitering I prefer to use a sled against the fence which some other members have also stated as a preference. I like that the frame is open for good air circulation. I am not a fan of enclosed cabinets. The routers in them get very hot. That table shows the router mounted in the center. My preference is to move it back against one side so that I have more table surface to work on. The fence can be turned around so that if you needed to cut some dadoes you could also move the fence farther away from the bit that way.
I like the bench top models for small to medium size and length and one on legs about belt buckle high for bigger stuff. That could easily be clamped to a couple of 2x4s on sawhorses for that.
Hope that helps Charles.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Not wild about the side track mounted fence. Vaguely smacks of the Kreg philosophy of keeping the fence parralel to the miter track while making it difficult to do anything else with it.
Other than that, looks like a decent little table.

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

I understand that router tables cant replace shapers in the shop, but I think could use the router for somethings. Do I really need to get a router plate?
