Default Am I Crazy?

So ... as with all of my projects, things have grown a bit. I am thinking about building this table for my shop. What are your thoughts?

This is a question which is best never asked.

Joe, have you considered how you plan to power 5 routers running simultaneously? Interesting idea, but maybe a little bit bent!

Crazy is good! Table is huge. Bigger is better until you can't reach across it.

The fence can be brought to the front and use the first six or 8 inches of space to route. The depth of the table is only for larger projects that require routes further from the edges.

Hmmm .... No, I hadn't. However ...

"2.25-HP, 12-amp motor, 8,000 to 25,000-RPM most powerful in its class"

It looks like I would need five dedicated 15A circuits! That is do-able. My shop will have a 400 Amp service.
