Art, there are many uses where the fence is pulled back. Dado cuts is one, using a sled to make profile cuts on the end of a board is another... imagination is the key to discovering new uses for your router.

This makes it easy to use your table like a bench with no worry of damaging it. I found a couple of the specialty router table designs in Patrick Spielman's book to be inspirational: the horizontal tilting table and the vertical tilting table. Check out this excerpt from the book.
