Nice but, not a finished woodworking project. Goes in a blog or forum IMNTHO.

Hey Monte,
I see you used L-brackets mounted in t-tracks for the fence adjustment. For my fence adjustment, I routed slots through the table top. In hindsight t-tracks would have been better. You will get more travel and you won’t get sawdust in the top compartments of the cabinet. However, with 4 t-tracks and L-brackets, it seems that your fence will be forced to be parallel with the t-track in the front. I can’t think of an example, but there might be an occasion when you want it nonparallel. Perhaps 2 t-tracks in the back is adequate. BTW, I respectfully disagree with OutPutter. The heading is projects, not finished projects. Plans and works in progress can be just as stimulating to the community.

I think it’s missing drawes for router bits….unless its the two drawers bottom center. Too much bending down if that’s the case. Drawers along the entire bottom would be better than doors. That way you don’t have to stand on your head to find something jammed in the back.

I agree with Patrick, sometimes its desireable to be nice n’ parallel (like using jigs in the miter slot for example) but othertimes you only care about the distance from bit to fence, and its easier to lock down one side and use it as a pivot to adjust the fence. And if you need to adjust it alot loosening 4 knobs or whathaveyou each time would annoy me personally.

Then again its your table :D
