Thank you Neville,your's is a much better method & I shall do it your way next time

Don't feel bad James as I'm sure most of us have done it . I finally gave up on making a template and bought a top from Incra lol . I'm going to build the stand though, as this way I can design it for my storage needs .
Bit by purchasing a top the plates hole is already done and a perfect fit , plus it has a miter slot .
I am going to build a double router table though , and will see how that goes

I don't know anything about CNC router tables , but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night

Remember that if use use guide strips and work to the hole side of them that the only direction the router can get away from you is toward the center hole.
Thank you Charles,this is the first RT I have built & I appreciate your advice about which glue to use etc.

I just noticed that you are in Oz James so I don't know how hard it would be for you to get the Melamine glue. I'm sure the Titebond will work too but I find the Melamine glue doesn't get starved as easily by the composite boards as most conventional glues seem to, especially when edge gluing.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
