I forgot the replaceable insert when I built mine. Big mistake. Have yet to fix that.

Well done.

I like this simple table with nice accessories and the removable/replacable ‘key’ panel could have sisters with dedicated jigs on each panel.

What is the base made out of? I’m thinking of using t-tracks in some of my jigs, but it seems that 3/4” plywood isn’t thick enough alone with the slot routed for the track. I was thinking of laminating an additional 1/4” plywood pice to the bottom of the 3/4”. But, I could just laminate two 3/4” pices together. Would that be too thick then?

The base is 2 layers of 3/4” plywood. Personally i would use the 2 layers again, as I like the stability of 1 1/2” table. Also, with the removable insert, I required a stable base. I do not think you would have the stability with only 1/4” base.

I recon (is that shop talk?) that I’ll have to make some cauls to laminate the two layers of plywood together evenly. And, I’ll need some more clamps. This woodworking thing is getting expensive.

No clamps for this lamination, glue it up, screw from the bottom and cut to shape, after the glue dries. Remember not to glue the removable insert, if you are using that feature.
