Okay members, here is your chance to brag. My son in GA, wants to see pictures of router tables to give him some ideas for his. I told him to look at mine and he don't need to see any others, but he didn't believe me. :)
So here are 3 of mine to get us started. Lets show him what you got.

Well, I'm building a table now. But I want to incorporate dust collection that that will necessitate a closed cabinet. Most of the cabinets have a door that opens on the side of the cabinet. I was thinking of hinging the top and tipping it up instead. It seems to me that there would be a lot less bending over and a lot more light shining on the router for bit changes, etc.

Has anyone done a table with a hinged top? Am I overlooking anything?
Yes, I built mine with a hinged top. I find it extremely convenient. I have a Milwaukee 3.5 hp router in it and it has it's own raising mechanism that works really well so no router lift is required. I screwed together 2 layers of 3/4" melamine and used a full length piano hinge on the back. Here are some photos of mine...Hope you like it...
