Plan from Popular Woodworking off the web. After researching, this seemed to be a pretty good one. Plans and information had a few hiccups so I would say use it as a basis. I modified it slightly by adding the drawer.
I was suspect of the vacuum as there is still a decent amount of sawdust, but it does collect quite a bit, make sure it is accesible to easily empty. I did delete the extra wood fence as I like the fence on the Makita.
Anyway, birch plywood and pine trim. Door is just birch ply and pine trim. Finish is spray poly. I have to still install tape and make a proper stop block.
I am happy with it, and learned a few things as I went. One is that if the t track fits in a 6” test strip of the dado blade, it may not fit in a 30” strip, had to use a wood chisel to widen after I finished it, so a little refinishing was done
