Cabinet style router tables should be approximately at belt height in order to properly feed the work into the router bit. With a bench top router table it is difficult to feed the work properly as you need to stand farther awayand extend your arms out further. You may wish to build a dedicated stand for it and install casters move it around in your shop. I have both types of router tables but use the cabinet style the most. If you build a cabinet style router table keep in mind the ergomonics of the table, straight back, bending the elbows at the proper angle and the pressure put on your hands and wrists, especially if you plan to use it alot. This comes from many years of use of both types of tables. IMHO.
