What kind of material do you prefer? 1/4 inch MDF, polycarbonate, some type
of sheet metal?
Give Pat Warner's site a look http://www.patwarner.com/ and look under
"Understanding Routing" and Router Table for some excellent advice and
ideas. I built the fence he did an article on in FWW and it is a workhorse
although it is a bit heavier than the one he shows now.
I'm just a hobbyist but two kitchen's worth of cabinet doors, drawers and
moldings plus an arched panel 36"x80" (really heavy) door for a family
member were all made using Pat's designed fence and some other add-on's for
router work I've purchased from him.
His site is one hell of a great resource and his products are quality made -
plus he's always been helpful with any questions I've had.
Making jigs when I'm not woodworking. :-)
They usually end up better than store bought, you get the satisfaction
of building it yourself, and you learn techniques and processes that
translate to woodworking. Plus, once you have one, you make others for
other tasks. I have about 5 different router plates for different task,
some make from phenolic, some poly-carb, some plywood.

"Hockey glass" - several years ago, they changed the glass on our towns ice
rink And I scored a couple sheets out of the dumpster - 12mm lexan(?). Rem
ove the router base plate and use it for a mounting hole template. Now you
can centre the hole for the bit and use the guide bushings and bits of your
choice (I used the Freud FT2020 guide bushing set - these are the Porter C
able style guides)to do the hole. Some careful thought and you should be ab
le to jig your way through
