Not being a fan of commercial and traditional router table designs for several reasons, awhile back I decided to build my own. One reason is the plate where it is either mounted in the center or too close to the miter track, to me that is a waste of Tabletop real estate since anything behind the fence is wasted. So on my table, the plate sets 15” center from front and 9” from back that gives me the 15” I need on front for large projects that I mostly work on.
The cutouts for the fence are rounded off so no work will catch the edges as I have seen with the imbedded track designs. Also the out-feed of the miter track is rounded off more than the inside for the same reason.
The horizontal section also has few features not found on commercial tables; besides being modular (able to remove when not in use) the entire front can be used with large sheets because the locking cams are placed in the back.
