There's a thread here at the top of the page that says " wanted , pictures of your router table" and it may provide you with ideas of which design you like and bit storage etc

I am going to attempt to build a work station slash router table with adjustable height here soon. I would like to keep as much real estate in my garage as I can so my table is going to double as an out feed table for my table saw . Not sure if I'm going to pull it off but I'm sure going to try .
(I suspect it's going to be three hundred bucks down the sewer lol)

Btw welcome to the forum

Here is a nice router table... Similar to Norm Abrams...

Ultimate Router Table

Work bench plans are numerous and widely varied. Depends on your needs, budget, and space. Well, router tables too, for that matter!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Plans? We don't need no stinkin' plans!

Just get some wood and get after it! Simple or complex - your choice.

I just finished building much more than a router table. Check it out here.

And here is my mobile workstation. It is the cat's meow!

In case you don't know, I work in a one car garage so space is limited. All of my stuff is on wheels or mobile bases except my work bench which does triple duty as an outfeed table, a work bench and an assembly table. I have attached a few pics of the work bench. The top is a solid core door with Formica laminated on it. Solid and heavy.

Hope it gives you some inspiration.

Welcome aboard.
Mike

I can't move it by myself. The top isn't attached to the frame. It is heavy enough to just sit there.
