Looks great, nice work.
I tried the aluminum angle fence for a while on my DP table, but got fed up with the fact that it was out of square. I looked at about 10 different pieces at the borgs and couldn’t find a single one that was good enough for me (and I’m not that picky).
Where did you find a good 90 degree piece of angle?

Very nice. Thank you for sharing. I’m about to make one of these for myself and this gave me some ideas.

Very nice. I built one a couple weeks ago and have it on my bench in the wrong place. The other day I bent down to pick up something from the floor and you know the rest of the story. OUCH. Will take some photos and post. BZ

I must have got lucky, I found a 90 deg angle at home depot after checking a couple with both a square and a Wixey angle gauge.

Nice, sure beats the small work surface they come with.

Shawn, Just curious about the mounting. I see the strips holdong from underneath, did you put the screws underneath the rails?

I countersunk the carriage bolt head into the table top and came up from the bottom. I think that you can see bolts in picture 2.
