Ok, this one actually took a couple hours to make!
I got the idea from a current issue of “Table Saw fixtures and Jigs”, on newstands now.
I’ve been looking for an idea for a table saw extension that doesn’t take up a lot of room. This does the trick! This idea gives an extra 2’ x 4’ of space and folds in half. I still have to add a leg, for now, I’m just using my roller extension as the support.
Made of 3/4” birch plywood and some scrap poplar. Total cost was about $16 for the sheet of plywood and hinges.
I bolted 2 pieces of 2” x 2” x 18”walnut to the sides of my contractors saw, then made the table extension.
Finished with paste wax
Works and looks great.
The router table extension (made last year) is a piece of bowling alley plywood. Note the switch on the right hand side. I plug my router into this instead of reaching under the table to turn the router on and off.
Note the rubber floor pads. These are the best things I placed in my shop in the past few years!
