Thank you very much for your reply.
I've been doing some work in sketchup (first time using it) and wanted to ask a few more questions:
1. Given I want to use this bench as my main workbench (I have very limited space so I'm trying to combine your ideas into a main work bench) I was originally going to make the bench thick and heavy to withstand lots of banging, etc, etc. As such I was going to use 2*2.5cm Hard-Ply wood (Marine Ply). I was going to glue and screw the two pieces together to make a thick table.
Do you think the extra thickness is neccessary, or in your experience would 2.5cm be thick enough?
2. I was looking to add 1 or 2 wooden vices to the design. (see the attached pictures for an illustration, these came from an instructable design i looked at). Do you see any issues in adding one to the front left and either right hand or left hand side of my design? I want to be able to use your horizontal router, etc but thought that having access to put it on the front (near the vertical router) and at one end (where the slides are) would be sufficient. Again would appreciate your comments.
3. I was going to drill holes through the top at various points to support the use of holdfasts and benchdogs in future. I can't see any way in which these would get in the way of your table functions but wanted to double check.
Thanks again for the great work and assistance.

1- as you can see in my table saw, you can remove the router very easy loosen up one screw and the circular saw can remove in similar way.
2- you must use adjustable and strong legs!
3-You have to reduce the right side, not the circular saw or router part, and so you will not have problems.
