crappy router table
I built mine - fence, jigs, all but the T-tracs. Not to brag, but it's slightly better than DM's. I just couldn't use on of the small tables and couldn't justify the prices, especially years ago when I built mine and was working out of a 4x5' toolshed at an apartment.
Forgot the main reason I built my own - all the ones with their own stands were too short and I hated having to bend all the time, especially since it made me more vulnerable to a high-velocity blade! This way, more of my weight and center of gravity is below the table top in case I fall or my knees should buckle from the long cuts.
I made an insert for my table saw just recently and had my doubts about the height when I was rounding some long strips of basemoulding...YIKES!
