Haven't decided on a base yet. Still need to buy some knobs for it, and cut out the base plate hole yet. But when i get it all done, I'm going to give it away to a friend who can't afford one. Don't need two tables.

Looks almost identical to mine.These tops can be had for a few dollars at office furniture stores, sometimes even for free in their dumpsters.

Very nice. It's also very plain and uncomplicated... a good thing in my opinion. Your friend should get years of enjoyment out of it.

Right on.This is something like what i am doing,I had the desk in back room used for computer but i made a new one and decided to make a router table out of it when done it will still have the drawers for keeping the router's and bits.I will sturdy up the leg's and install wheel's to be able to move it around.It will also have a 1/2 in piece of plywood for a removable top so it can be used for an extra work place.I will send pictures as soon as i get it done.

I finished the router table top. I used a Grizzly router plate. Threw on a couple of feather boards I had laying around. I give it to my friend earlier tonight. He wants to build the base for it. This is something I never tried before. Thank you all for the tips I read about on this forum.
