    Not heavier than the 4x4 legs plus under framing others have suggested here.
    Something simple/easy/quick to build, no framing, just simple cleats in the corners/junctions.
    just another design to consider...
    :D

    When routing laminates spray plenty of WD-40 on the bearing and knives. It helps prevent the glue or contact cement from building up and fouling things. Also soak the bits in lacquer thinner and clean when you are done. Also if going against an edge already with laminate on it like the edge of a counter top, if you put petroleum jelly on it it makes things easier.

    Too damn clean and orderly. Every time I see a pic like this I want to head out and start cleaning my shop up. Fortunately almost every time I think of this I soon find something else I need to do first :)
    Very nice looking job you did there!
