There's no reason to apologize for your choice of router table size; mine is 30"x52". I chose that size for four reasons: (1) it takes full advantage of the capabilities of my fance, (2) it holds 2 routers, (3) it rests on a full-sized rolling base with *lots* of drawers for tool storage (which I *really* needed, and (4) I wanted it that size. <g>
I also recognize that others like much smaller tables; it's a matter of personal preference. What's best for one may not be best for all and everyone here is expected to respect that.
Mine was made by sandwiching 2 layers of 3/4" MDF between layers of Formica. A maple trim was then added. I've attached an old picture of it, before the base was built.
