My table is the cast iron Bench Dog ProMax RT sitting on a Rockler stand with an Incra/jessem Router lift. Then.....I got (long stry, will tell in another post) an Incra Jig Ultra (the predecessor to the LS Positioner) and realize that the table will not work well with this tool because there is not enough clear area behind the router to place the jig.

So, my suggestion is this - if you are wanting a store bought model, you'll have to decide if you'll be using a jig similar to the LS Positioner or not. If yes, then you'll need an offset table (Incra sells them - or look on ebay or Craigs List for an older Woodpecker unit). These, from what I have found, are either phenolic or MDF - no cast iron.

If, on the other hand, you will not be using a jig like the LS Positioner, but instead a simple or complex fence that simply connects to the table, then I highly recommend the Bench Dog proMax RT. It is FLAT FLAT FLAT and will not sag over time of if you install a 400 HP (kidding) router. I'm not yet allowed to send pictures, but when I get there, I'll insert a picture or two of the rig I set up.

The above is just my 2 cents worth. Good luck.

Best router table

Joe makes some beautiful tables, and is a forum member. If I hadn't built my own, I would buy one of his just because they look so good. (I hope he does another raffle)

If you cannot purchase from him economically due to shipping, there are plans available for purchase of a similar table. New Yankee Workshop - Featuring the Craftsmanship of Master Carpenter Norm Abram

Personally, I would build a table that suits your needs. There have been other cabinet makers on this forum who experimented with 2 or 3 routers installed in a single table to make the production of cabinet doors simpler by not having to change setups for each operation.

If you have the space (you obviously have the skill) you might want to experiment building a table of your own.
