« Part 7: Attaching table to frame Part 8 of Gil-Bilt 18" Band Saw build series Part 9: Completion! »

The plans call for a rather simple rip fence fabricated from hardwood. I decided to use some leftover 3/4” oak to make my fence. I laminated two pieces together and dado’d a channel in the top to accept stops, clamps, etc. The shorter piece bolted to the metal clamp/indicator (that runs on the aluminum channels) and I attached this piece to the fence proper with a single dowel. The fence is simple to remove from the table when not in use. Think it looks good.
