Agree with dbhost.

I would add. Make friends with a kitchen counter installer. A large sink cutout from laminated kitchen counter surrounded by oak makes a great table. Or, closeout or demos of laminate counter top. I have one as my main router table, with a 3 hp router.

Also, I have a table top from a fast food restaurant that was remodeling. I mounted it to an old gas grill base, for a semi-mobile router. It has a 2 hp router mounted in it for small jobs.

This project shows both of my router tables: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/49342

The “big” table cost me about $200 to make.

The “little” one costs $30 for the router plate and $3 for paint. Everything else was dumpster dive or salvaged.

Maybe these will give you a few ideas to get your started.
