High-end router tables

Every shop needs a router table for safely crafting joinery and decorative edges on workpieces. Although it can be as simple as a piece of plywood and a clamped-on straightedge, these high-end models bring accuracy and adjustability to the table, while leaving frustration (and a few Benjamins) behind. All three feature combination T-track and miter-slot inset in the top, and an extruded aluminum fence with independent sub-fences, shims to offset the faces, T-track, and a 212 " dust port.
