You can’t be afraid to drill holes in your table saw!! This works great for dado and any cut that needs a feather board. Please note the two extra holes just in case I need to move it forward.

Great Idea, Gene!

Wish my table say had a solid wing. Maybe I could make a cross brace to capture below the webs in the wing.

Thanks for sharing!

PS- I like the red warning areas, too!!

Gene: A great addition of a couple of safety items. The feather board and the red warning areas.

I am curious, why didn’t you make the feather board to work with the miter slot?

dbhost,
With the slotted way that I have made it, I can run stock twice as wide as you can with a regular feather board mounted in the miter slot. Plus it cost relatively nothing to make. Thanks for the question.

Seen a lot of feather boards, but your red warning areas are a fantastic idea! Bet you have at least half of your fingers!
