My new router table fence made from 10/4 poplar. That's 2 1/2 inches thick. I drilled a 4" hole thru it, and cut an arch into the face of it to allow suction thru the front where the action is. I may add a hole thru the table and connect it to the bottom side of the table to suck up the pieces that go downwards. I attached it with draw bolts (for under counter tops). This worked out well, I don't need to hold the bottom while I loosen, or tighten the bolts. It has interchangeable face plates of varying thicknesses too. I run the ands of the face plates past the router bit I am using with the t-square to make a perfect fit around the bits. No place for the piece to slip into the bit this way. This is all mounted right in my tablesaw drop table. I made a t-square channel, and a featherboard chanel. I also wired in a switch so I don't have to open the door to turn the router on and off. The 3 1/4 HP adjustable speed router makes a HUGE difference also.

Bench Dog 40-001 ProTop Contractor Benchtop Router Table
Includes ProTop Contractor Router Table - 40-001

Don't let its compact size fool you. The award-winning Bench Dog 40-001 ProTop Contractor Benchtop Router Table makes use of a unique forward offset router location and the dual-position ProFence to provide as much usable work surface as most full-size router tables. Designed to be durable, easy to move around the job site, and ready to accept any router, it provides the versatility, stability, and guidance you need to complete precision projects safely.

The ProTop Contractor Benchtop Table adds versatility and precision to your router setup. View larger.
Versatile Design for Precision Work
Whether you're a professional craftsperson or a serious do-it-yourselfer, a router table like the ProTop Contractor lets you tackle jobs that would be difficult or impossible to complete precisely with a handheld router.
A top-quality fence is critical to the performance of any router table system, and this system relies on the feature-loaded ProFence. Its heavy-duty, one-piece aluminum frame is fully machined on the front and bottom surfaces to ensure it's flat, true, and square. Easy-adjust sub-fences and bit guard are also included.
The ProTop Contractor provides a flexible setup that can be adjusted to project-specific needs, with an aluminum miter accessory track that is adjustable to fit all standard miter gauges, plus accessory T-slots on both the table and fence that are perfect for mounting featherboards, stops, fence risers, and switches. This allows you to accommodate the full range of router applications, from cutting dadoes and slots to crafting precise joints. For work with large panels, this table also offers dual fence slots, so you can flip the fence around quickly and easily.
An integrated 2-1/2-inch dust port fits standard shop vac hoses to help keep your work area clear of debris for safety, visibility, and operator comfort.
Dependable Construction for Tough Jobs
The non-marring laminate top is built using stress-skin construction for strength and flatness, and it measures 24 x 16 inches to provide a large work area. Exclusive twin steel rails support your router, while the enclosed birch plywood cabinet reduces dust and noise, and its solid panel construction makes it stronger than cheap plastic or stamped steel stands. The cabinet's rubber feet prevent table slippage and double as isolation mounts for dramatically reduced vibration.
This table's setup will accept any router, and the included router plate is predrilled to make installation extra-easy for most popular routers from leading brands like Craftsman, DeWalt, Fein, Hitachi, Makita, Ryobi, and Skil. The 15-inch inside-cabinet height provides plenty of space for whatever router you use, plus room for Bench Dog's ProLift and other accessories (not included).
This portable router table weighs just 40 pounds, and it requires assembly. It is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
