Default new bench top table build

hello everyone,
just finished buliding my benchtop router table, its from an issue of wood magazine, number 4 i think, so goes back a bit.
i built a table before which went on my workmate, it was ok, but was a bit to large and awkward, i had to keep dragging it out from under my workspace to use it.
i liked the idea of a benchtop version, and liked this one i made.
the top , legs and feet are from a fileing cabinet that i was given and the fence is made from pine.
works very well, open to ideas for improvements.
hope you like it.

Make sure the fence is square to the table top.
