I was curious if any of you had suggestions on the best choice for a DIY option?
I would say that whatever fits your size of router and what projects you will be doing
would be your best choice.
more information of what your project is would help (photos would help even more).
I am thinking you want to make a Router Sled ?? like for flattening slabs of wood.
google it: (also many videos on YouTube on Router Sleds)

Check out Harry Sinclair's Router Skiis. I made a set. With a small add-on I was able to use one of the skiis as a router trammel to route circles.I was looking around for a router planer jig and saw a ton of different options on how you could make one. I was curious if any of you had suggestions on the best choice for a DIY option?
Thanks in advance.
The way I've commonly seen that used, instead of the router's original base plate a basic router table plate is used. Enough stability for professional use.The type pictured above will leave skid marks, every time. because the router is top heavy and the cutter is wide, it will rock as you push it back and fore across the slot.
