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

Great job, love the fold down wings. I have also heard good things about that saw as well. Nice work.

Very nice, I built the same one and you are right about the plans, they missed a few things.

I too choose to skip the fence on the wings. I haven’t gotten around to adding a t-track to it, but I need to. I’m tired of clamping blocks to it…..

Sailor- The fence did house a stop block for dimensions smaller than say 13”, but I think I will just build two stop blocks, one that extends out and a regular stop block (like the temporary. I may even make the extension a hinged piece of the regular stop block. then I will install two tapes or the two pieces of tape

Bullethead- I am not really a great door builder so I am experimenting with the shop projects on a few easy doors.
