First - welcome to the best woodworking forum on the net -
To answer your question - look at the forum thread we are in at the moment and read the post titled "router lift". I bought a table and lift a few years ago which I'm happy I own... but had I seen this "router lift" post, I would have built my own. Al Thayer really built an excellent table and lift - just as accurate as expensive set up. His lift is a simple build with excellent result.
Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.
