Added this extension wing router table to my Porter Cable table saw. This makes the saw top 65”wide, I added another built in adjustable extension wing to the router table. The second will extend another 10”, which will assist when routing large panels.
The router fence has an adjustable lower and a fixed upper with a T-track. The fence can be attached to the table by the T-tracks or can be fixed to the saw fence. The table saw fence can also be used alone for the router.

Good work. You’ll find that extension to be a very welcomed addition to your shop. I added one to my table saw a while back. Mine incorporated some much needed outfeed space. Here is how it turned out;

Nice job. I have the same table saw and did something similiar. I really like the extra extension. Would be glad to hear your thoughts on mine.

Thanks Doug, I was debating on adding an out feed table but my single car garage just does not have the room. I do most of my cutting out on the driveway with a second table that is the same height. Just hope for no rain!

Brandon, I did see your table, first thing I noticed was the same saw. Your design assisted with making mine, I really like your built in dust collection. Thanks.

nice set-up Matt, just an observation (might be wrong) does your miter gauge run on a cheap board slot without a miter track? If this is the case, I think in the near future you will need one.
