Topic tags/keywords: question

Ok jocks, I`m looking to build a router table, one that will house 4 routers at once . One for style, one for rails, one for panel and one for what ever.

What would be the smallest work surface I could stand for each application ?
Been doing a little thinking and it will be a large table.

Any suggestions ?

bigike, I will have insert plates, On the panel side I will not have miter tracks I dont think, but will on the style and rail. I dont know about the other at this point.

I would not use anything less than 3/8” plexiglass. Are you looking to have all 4 routers on the table at one time? If so you might want to look at Grizzly.com and look at their shapers. That might give you a better idea of how to design your table.
