Recently I did some thinking about what I could do with my table saw. My solution is a little outside the box but I feel it will work great.

Brian That is a great solution for that small saw.I really like the sliding fence. You have enough space off to one side to possibly put a router if needed and save some space.

Looks like a good save Brian, should keep you in business for a while. How much blade height do you get with this set up. With a sled I don’t imagine you will have much more then two inches left. I would suppose that would be enough for most sled jobs though. Again looks like a good save for a used up table saw, good job.

Excellent increase in function. I love that you shopped around for what you want, then did it yourself. Bravo!

Looks like a great project! My TS surface isn’t flat either, I might make something like this. Great job!

good job on your saw, when i saw what you did the thought came to me that you could have done the same thing with a much larger piece thus providing outfeed support, plastic laminate would also give a more durable surface but i think what you have should do fine if you keep the finish in good shape and wax it, the fence could be better and it seems that your skill is more than sufficient to build your own based on a biesemeyer design, keep up the good work

The maximum blade height I have now is a little over 2” which works out fine. I never cut anything thicker than 2” on the table saw anyways, always go to the bandsaw for anything thicker. The fence is just temporary, the main concern was to just get one built that worked, I will brainstorm and get ideas for one when I have time.
