I had finagled this set-up to obtain a “taller” fence on the table saw.Raised Panel Set-Up
While this did work, it left much to be desired, and today I took a few minutes to make a more permanent solution. It couldn’t be simpler…
I quickly gave the same drawer fronts used in the temporary set-up a rough sanding, then marked approximately where I wanted bolts with chalkChalk marks where the bolts will go
I then bored out some shallows for the bolt headsDrilling "Shallows" for bolt heads
Then clamped up the two sides in preparation for drillingClamping the two sides for drillingDrilling to receive bolts
All that was left was to put in some spacer blocks, which I screwed in from the backAttached spacer blocks
And there you have it!New and improved "tall" fence
It’s on there good and tight, is still able to be moved for width adjustment, and doesn’t interfere with the fence clamp either! Simple! :)

Ahh, Rosewood…funny you should mention that. I just came into possession of a rather nice old piece of Oak that just might enhance my supply… :)

I made something like that once.

It was for my old Craftsman Contractors saw. I did some walnut cabinet fronts with it.






I also made similar jig for diagonal cove cuts. Looked pretty cool after good curved scraping.

Nice fixture for your table saw. You may have inspired me to get off me arse and make one for my saw.
