I am actually on my third router table. The first two were home made and essentially wore out from use. A couple of years ago my wife bought me the Benchdog table saw extension router table. I doubt I will wear this one out.

My previous shop was in my basement (when I lived in Illinois and had a basement) now it is in the garage since many houses in the San Jose do not have basements.

My first router table was made from counter top sink cut out. The base of that material is particle board and was not exactly flat. The second one was 3/4” plywood and I still have remnants of that left.

As Bodogaposis pointed out, there are tons of plans available and the hardest part is deciding which one to build!
