You can make a simple router table, made from MDF---
24" x 36"x3/4" stock, 2 layers thick.
(two layers thick so as to provide a stable platform).
Add a hole in the top for router bit clearance, and mounting holes, to secure the…"
I've had cracking happen to me, near the ends, in hard and soft wood,
when the screw is 1/2-1" from the end of the workpiece.
