That is my router table.
All made from scrap
The plate (can’t see) is an old flat pan my wife was throwing away
The frame is made of a old window
Top is ply wood
It sits on my poorman’s work bench
I remove the table saw to put the router table
I reach down to turn the bolt to lift the router
Not perfect
But I make do

Thanks for watching

I would say you have something to work with here. Never give up, if it works and get the job done it’s good! Just follow the safety rules. My compliments for your efforts!

That’s what a simple router table is, a flat piece of wood with a hole in the middle, and four legs to to support it,
you could use a 2 by 4 as your fence and you are set.
Well done.
