Check your fence for squareness

One of the key requirements for a router table fence, is that it must be square to the tabletop. Like the top, the fences serves as a reference for the bit. If it's not square, it can affect the accuracy of your cuts. 

Check your fence for square at several locations along its length. A small machinist's square is a great tool for the job. If you find the face of the fence isn't square, shimming it with a piece or two of tape on the underside may be all you need to bring it square.
