Default Router Tables

I am I new member and have never joined a forum, so be easy. I have been in the construction field for more than 40 years and was in the NAVY Seabees in the Vietnam Era. I love working with wood. Mostly cabinets, toys and whatever interest me at that moment. I have been using Craftsman Routers mostly, but for Christmas got a Triton 3 1/4 Hp router. I want to make a router table/ cabinet. I need some help in mounting plates, designs for the table etc....

Thanks for all the info. I guess from what I am seeing , that a manufactured router plate in my new table is the way to go. I am looking at the table that Norm on the Yankee Workshop built as a basis of design.

Larry, if you want a table like that you can buy one for less than it would cost you to make it. Forum member Joe was selling his RT1000 6 months before Norm built his. Joe is offering a special deal to forum members which you can see here: http://www.routerforums.com/vendor-a...e-package.html

Hi Larry. Welcome. My first Router Table took me four hours to make and cost me almost nothing. My present set up still works on the same principle - almost.
Regards, Dave.
