Based on Norms but made on the fly. Face frame is walnut I bought at an auction. I have a Jessem lift. Love it.

Beautiful table. I’m curious, what’s sitting next to the table on the left? Is that a crosscut sled? It looks like it has metal runners.

Iowa,

It is a crosscut sled made from mdf and the backstop is qs white oak. The runners are 3/4×1/4 metal bought from Lowes. I had to file the bolts down so it would fit in the miter slots. I would make them from wood or that high density plastic if I had to make another.

Great job John. Nice bit of dovetail. Mine is rigeed under the end of the table saw, I use the T/S fence as a guide, works pretty well but not as fancy as yours. Well done.

Beautiful job. I just built mine and I love it. You will enjoy using it. Also, nice joinery and use of the Plexiglas front.
