I’ve been meaning to do this project for a while, and over the last few days I’ve found the time to get it done. I chose to replace the right stamped steel wing of my Delta 36-725 table saw with the router table. Using a rockler insert plate and kreg levelers I went about putting it together. Top is 3/4 inch MDF trimmed in oak. The fence is 3/4 ply with oak used as the movable part of the fence.

How do you have the router mounted underneath, or is it just the MDF suspending the routers weight?

I ask because MDF has poor ability to keep from sagging if unsupported.

Looks very good though, that fence design if built square (from that last pic, it appears yours is) is a very good design, and you will be happy with it.

The underside is a mini-torsion box, so hopefully that should counteract any potential sagging of the MDF
