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.

Nice size work surface.
And that fence & stop are nice!
Good Job.

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.
