What is the red material used here? Melamine?

Can anyone ID the router shown in this pic? Looks like it might be the largest one that would fit, though I have been thinking about replacing the gravity rise stand with a shop made one, since I never travel with the saw.

Are there other limitations that experts can identify with this design that wouldn’t be obvious to a novice like myself?

I would guess the red is melamine, also.

Hard to say what router from the pic. Definitely Dewalt, but 616? 618? Can’t tell.

I don’t see many limitations, aside from the one that has stopped me from putting a router table extension in my saw thus far – the fact that you can only use and have set up one at a time. Sometimes in a project I want to leave the tool set up a certain way, and if I am bouncing from table saw to router, if they are in the same machine table, the setup has to change.

That may just be me and my workflow mindset, though. As always, YMMV.

I have that same saw w/ the gravity rise stand, and I think that setup would be fine for a once in a while routing job, but I wonder how it would effect the extending table having the weight of the router, insert, and the workpiece on it. I don’t think I’d plan on mounting a full-size router in it. I think if you were replacing it with a shop made one, you could provide some extra support on the far end of the extending table.

Are you looking at this approach for space saving, portability, or something else?
