Here is a simple router table made from Formica and maple. Keyhole slots allow you to remove the fence without removing the hold-down knobs. The tall knobs are from Kreg. I made an mdf template that I sized around the router table insert plate. I then used a pattern cutting bit to rout the recess for the insert plate. The key is to make the template pieces long enough that you can clamp them down, without getting in the way of the routing operation. I recommend putting one or two layers of tape around the insert plate before you size your mdf template. That way the recess will be just the right size to drop the insert plate in.
Insert plate: Bench Dog, Vacuum port: Rockler, Miter track: Woodcrafters
