When I purchased my table saw in April 2010, I cut a hole in the extension wing and dropped my router lift in. It worked, but it had problems. It was intended to be a temporary fix until I could build the one I really wanted.
This is a torsion box design with two 1/2” MDF skins and a 1” tall by 5/8” thick grid work in between. The top is replaceable and is screwed on from underneath, before the bottom MDF skin is in place. This version is very flat, I had made one for my old table saw and it was also flat and stayed that way. I added a few details to this one, like the solid wood trim, a switch (which is handy), and a dust collection box underneath, which gathers about 95% of what the router dishes out when combined with the fence dust collection.
Thanks for looking.
