good looking project.. i would add a zero clearance plate to prevent tear out and to keep my fingers from wanting to end up between the bit and the fence

Looks sturdy. What type router will you power it up with? I’m in the process of building a table and buying a router myself. Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the comments guys. I have a PC 690. I got it as a plunge and fix based kit. The bit drawers can hold up to 72 bits. Plenty for me!
