Ya’ know ….. while this wouldn’t work for the router table …. easily …. I’ve read about a FEW people who simply took double-walled corrugated boxes … cut a few holes in ‘em (infeed, outfeed, and controls), and slapped them over their planers.

And you could line the box WITH EPS panels, for even MORE soundproofing.

I’m trying to think about what % of the sound on MY router table comes from ABOVE vs. below. Whatever % comes from below wouldn’t be that hard to squelch, either—the same way.

I used hardboard panels to box in the sides of my Kreg PRS2000 router table. Made a dent in the noise. Again: insulating THOSE panels could make a bigger dent.

And—of course—Pop’s right. I used to be an audio guy. Those Sonex panels could make a BIG difference … as could (literally) egg crates, or egg crate foam (hardware store). You could just build a four-sided box, line IT with the foam, put in lighting, if you wanted, and probably knock out a BIG chunk of the noise from the top.

Good luck !
