This fence uses the Kreg system and goes along with the miter bench I posted a few weeks ago. I laminated some 3/4 MDF with the same material used on the bench top and sprayed the rest of the fence black to match. I cut slots in the back support and marked their locations on the bench top using a punch. I used t-nuts to hold the bolts in place and attached the fence through the slots with knobs. All in all, pretty simple and very accurate. I just need to add the tape measure. Here’s some more pics.

Very neat.
That is some cool spray paint you have there.
Does it look like granite, or is it the picture playing tricks with my eyes?

Anyway, looks like a really good workstation.

What a great looking set up and very clean to boot. Nice job. How do you like that Miter saw Bosh came out with? I have heard a couple compliants that it doesn’t cut as square as some would like? I looked at this very closely at woodworking show in Vegas a while back.

The only thing wrong with all that storage is I would be opening all the drawers looking for something LOL

Great work.

Now that’s the way to set up a saw! It’s beautiful, but would look out of place in my organized mess.

Hi Tim,

That’s a great looking addition that will really speed up the process of cutting duplicate parts.

Wonderful setup! I have set up something akin to yours. Although I feel as if mine is of the Neanderthal variety after vierwing the pictures.

I went as far as purchasing the Kregg system a year ago, Maybe this will be the year I get this project done Yours might be the inspiration I need.
