I’ve been needing some of these for a while and finally got around to making a few. Made of baltic birch, it’s about 12” long and has a 14” runner and tightens with a t-nut. Easy project fit nicely into a productive weekend!

I made one years ago and the “feathers” varied so much from one to the next I was embarrassed to have it in the shop so I tossed it and bought one.

Yup. Nicer than mine, too. Does (1) star knob hold tight? I put two on mine, but maybe I can reclaim one of my star knobs.

The knob does a good job of holding tight so far, Eric.

Great job on a very useful shop made feather board. I’m sure you know but I would like to state for those that don’t and might see this. You should never use a feather board on a table saw in the position it is in the picture. The feather board would cause the material to be pushed into the spinning blade with lateral force and could cause a kick back. The feather board should be placed before the blade at least a couple inches.

Bobmedic: thanks so much for pointing that out. Certainly not a good place for it to sit!

Nice work on the feather board, @wunderaa. Another favorited project.
Looks like you have a Craftsman table saw with the Exacticut marker.
