so for Christmas several years ago, I got my first table saw. It was about $100 from big blue and I was happier than a pup with two tails. I was very new to woodworking and excited to give my circular saw a break and start making larger projects. this is one of the first modifications I made, an extension table for cutting larger material. The stock table saw had a rip fence of about 12”, this mod increased that by 3x. It hangs to the wall by a ledger and i used my roller stand to get it nice and level and mounted it to 2 studs in the wall. it works pretty good too. made from pine and melamine it’s heavy enough not to wiggle and a nice surface to slide any material across. I haven’t came up with a very robust fence system other than a nice perpendicular edge fence made from scrap melamine. I raise the blade all the way up and square up the fence using a tape measure, and I haven’t ran into any serious issues yet…... it also doubles as a nice auxiliary table when i’m running out of empty space on my workbench, or floor, or wherever else i need to sit something.
Thanks for looking
