I have been trying to reduce the dust in my basement shop and I needed a new router table. So I borrowed the Incra fence design for dust collection and incorporated it into my version of a lift top table. I made the top from 11/2” Anglem Pedra with a white oak cabinet face/doors and plywood cabinet. The fence is mounted to an old Shopsmith Jointer/shaper fence. I mounted a Frued Ft 2000 router under the table with a RouterRize retofit lift. I used a Rakego folding bracket to support the top in the up position. http://www.rocaindustry.com/marine/Product/Rakego-folding-bracket/177/Full%7C350/
The dust collection works far better that I could have hoped. I have a dust and chip free area after using the table. The ole re-purposed ShopSmith fence with the duct face is very solid. The air flow is shown in the attached sketch.
