My homage to Steve Ramsey. Made this over the weekend from 3/4” birch ply, 1/4” pine plywood, and oak 3/4”x1 1/2” banding. Decided to add the 1/4” play under top birch piece after routing the the slots for the t-tracks to strengthen the table while using clamps. The fence is just two pieces of the 3/4” ply with Steve’s slot idea. ground the sides of the heads of 2 – 1/4” carriage bolts to fit the t-track. I don’t have Steve’s sliding sacrificial center piece. I’m still thinking of a solution for that. Big box store wanted a small fortune for knobs so I epoxied nuts in a couple of cherry scraps. Last step was adding 2 coats of past wax. It looks out of place with the rest of my shop.
I have several toilet bolts to use with the t-tracks to create hold downs. Any suggestions about their design?
