    Both the Makita & the DeWalt 611 PK ( and the Porter Cable also I guess) aren't really "Trim routers". They are "compact" routers.
    They've upped the HP rating from "1HP" to "1.25HP". I can't comment...

    Excellent advice. I've seen far too many "just do" things that have not only become permanent or - worse yet - been added onto.

    Personally - I favor a piece of plywood over 1 by whitewood if it's some sort of load bearing support.
    I just feel screws hold better in plywood than in 1 by whitewood.
