Welcome, Paul, I'm a newbie here myself but I've lots of router experience and would advise you to look around elsewhere here for shop-built table routers and such.

I'm partial to the Dewalt DW616 plunge router because of its versatility and rugged construction. I use it for doing mortises mostly, but it has served me well in other uses.

The best setup is a dedicated router cabinet with a large work surface. You can build your own from plans (google ultimate router table, or norm abrams router table) available on the internet.
