What brand TS and Rout Tbl do you have?
Any pics?
I, myself prefer to separate the two.
I have been using a 32×24” router table.
IF…and I say with emphasis…Build your own router Table…to your specs…I did…buy the important parts…I bought the top…from Rockler – 3/4” 15-ply Phenolic Finnish Birch (or whtever), and glued it to 3/4 MDF…a JessEm plate wpattern, an extruded aluminum backing brace for fence, a vac port, and misc. knobs, T tracks, Incra miter slide, and such…I built the cab, it’s only 3/4” ply…most of the shit they try to sell is worse, or close, ha.
And my TS is always available without being cumbersome from a router extension….with just the TS fence to roll away, and cross-cut at my will.

these are old pics, but it should explain my feelings about having separate working areas.
