I am pretty sure this kind of project has been posted a zillion time but I decided to post it anyway.
I am happy it came out good and it serves me well.
Pretty basic plywood with plastic laminate /formica top and bottom applied with contac cement.
Dado on the bottom to hold the UHMV runner. Two other dados on the top for the tracks.
The dado for the runner was positionned so that I had a litle over 1/16 more than the distance from the miter to the blade. I drill 2 holes so I can hang it.
Once it was all assembled, Checked to make sure my blade was all square then run it through to cut the extra off.
All the exposed edges besides the one that contacts the blade received 3 coats of poly to seal them.
The 2 other pictures show the hold down and a tapered cut setup I was trying. The blocks in the picture was me trying to repeat the taper cut to make sure it all works goood.
