I would suggest to go with a router table that has a hole for a "base plate". The base plate wou be attatched to your router so that when you want to change bits and do different operations it will be very easy. This would also make it easy to ensure that your cutters are tightened properly. The last thing you want is a router bit chasing you around the shop when it comes loose. One more advantage to having a router table / baseplate system is it would allow for you to change the ammount of space exposed around the cutter. For operations where you require more space (biger molding bits) then you mount your router on a base plate with a big hole. When using a smaller cutter (ie. 1/4'' straight bit) you can use a base plate with a smaller hole.

My personal favorite is the system that Bob and Rick Rosendahl use on the RouterWorkshop show. They are available @ www.oak-park.com. Please check them out there well worth it if you are into woodworking like I'm.
