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)
