Nice Job, CJ!

Are you going to put any type of support under the left side? Just in case you have any long, heavy pieces to cut- the table/saw would be less likely to tip.

Just a thought.

Yes I am thinking about adding a brace, on the left wing.

Great job… if/when you feel inspired, how about a “futurist” look for the stand to match the RAS? Buck Rogers would be proud!

Looks good Charles. Another addition might be to add a stop block. Route a channel and countersink a piece of T-track to one side of the blade about an inch from the fence. Make a stop from a block of wood and use a toilet bolt to secure it.

Kind of wish I use dado and rabbets. I just hope those pocket hole screws hold up.

You are all over it CJ. Looks good and you probably have a better tool than if you had bought a new one. I think the cabinet will be a real plus to your shop. I would put a door on it to keep dust out. Make sure it is stable when you have a long piece of stock on it before you start cutting.
