The main limitation of the table is its size, which will limit the length of materials you can easily pass by/over the cutting/sanding bit.

With soft materials, it was quick and easy to shave off a specific amount off one edge, while routing bits were able to deal with harder materials. Leaving the rotary tool and cutting bit to do most of the work, we didnt see any signs of flaws in the cuts due to tool movement; so long as you dont apply too much pressure, the Router / Shaper is able to provide clean, accurate cuts.
