Ive been in the process of building a router table into my table saw’s extension. I’ll post more on the table itself later. But I wanted to highlight the fence, which is quickly becoming my favorite fence accessory.
I made it primarily from 3/4” MDF, except for the braces on the back which I made from plywood. The face of the fence is about 9” high and is split at the bottom. It can widen up to 4 inches. Its laminated with formica for a smooth, flat, and durable finish. I trimmed out the fence with a bit of scrap walnut, which is what I am using for the doors of the cabinet being built below the table.
I put a kreg t-track and feather boards on it and added a compartment on the back for a 2.5” dust port which really keeps things clean.
Two other things I like about this style fence is that it has a couple convenient tool totes built into the back and the fence is attached to my table saw fence using clamps instead of the type that saddle the table saw fence, which in my opinion is harder to keep square.
Building a router table into the side of your table saw is a great way to save space in a small shop like mine and the different options for fence accessories are all up to your imagination.
