Hi old folks

You can make your own with some birch plywood quick and easy.

But it's not cheap,you can cut a corner or two but you may not like what you will end up with :( lets see if I can add it up for you, 3/4" x 4 x 8 plywood at about 35.oo bucks but it's not birch just the sandard plywood or MDF then the base plate to mount the router to at about 35.oo bucks then you want a install kit at about 20.oo bucks, then the little items,glue,screws,knobs,etc. you will drop 150.oo bucks b/4 you can install the router in the box/cabinet ,so the bottom line is get one that's done for your 1st one,like the one below for 120.oo bucks or 200.oo bucks then all you need to do is install your router when the UPS driver drops it off at your door step. :)
You can get one of the cheap Sears ones but I don't recommend them.

see the links below, for many ideas how to make one/:) plus you can send off for the plans if you want to.

Hi

If you are talking about the one for 119.oo yes it is.
I know you said that you are on SS and you have a limited budget for tools like we all do. I think that it will do it for you and you can always use it if you make a bigger and better one down the road, can't have to many routers or router tables.
It's nice to have one setup with one bit and then just move over the other one to do one more router job.

It always amazed me with all the router tables and routers that Bob and Rick have at their disposal they only use one on the show (RWS) and they always pop in a new router and plate to setup for a new cut when they could turn around and run it on one of the other ones they have setup.
Likes Ricks router table . :)
