The article in ShopNotes, only covers what to look for in a quality plate.
The router table in question is of an entirely different article in the same issue. Meaning no offense to any one here but, the table itself looks to me like a copy cat of several different makes including Norm A.'s table. I'm not saying it's a bad table, just looks like several different styles in one.

"Whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life". That is HONOR, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it." -Author Unknown
