Here’s my first project posted to LJ. I just finished this table saw router extension wing. It’s made of mostly 3/4” birch plywood. I finished it with wipe on poly, but am not sure that is the best for this application. I put paste wax on my cast iron top, should I put that on top of the dried poly? Thanks for checking it out.

Here’s the video I did on how I made it.

Nice job. I keep telling myself one day I am going to add a wing or two to my table.
Just never got around to it.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks. That is the main reason I made/posted the video. I was very close to making the router cabinet Steve Ramsey made, but I really have no space for that. I knew the table saw extension was possible, but for some reason it seemed intimidating to make…not sure why. It was very easy to make. I used pocket holes for the frame. Then I laid that upside down on my table saw and inserted the top and screwed it from the sides. I was concerned it wouldn’t be strong enough but it is such a small area that I don’t foresee anything sagging or moving. I can leave the router attached to the insert and use an undrilled insert when I don’t need the router.

Jeremy – you will find this a big improvement and a necessary add on to increase your woodworking scope.

To ensure a slick surface I would apply a coat of paste wax with 0000 wire wool, leave for 10 mins, then buff to a soft sheen. Subsequent coats of wax ( I would apply 3 ) need only be applied with a soft cloth from there on in.This will provide you with a protective and slick layer for the RT top. You can then apply a coat or two of wax as you feel the drag increasing although the first coats will last for a while between coatings of wax, dependant of course what you run across it.

Hope you have fun, good luck

Nice extension Jeremy, as David stated in his post yes it’s ok to paste wax over the poly, I do it all the time on my boxes also using the same method he mentioned.
