I’ve been thinking of making something similar. I noticed you are using those small unifence sections they sell at peachtree for your fence. How do you like it? I’ve been thinking of using that as well but I actually have a unifence on my saw (old Unisaw) so I could just attach them to my current fence.

Anyways like what you have there I really need to make the time to build one myself.

Nice job. The cutout for the plate looks like you did a good job. I tried to make my own template twice before getting it on the 3rd time. I messed up the track, or so I thought. I forgot that I bought a Kreg miter / T slot which is way wider than just the gold T track so I was able to route out more and eliminate my mess up where the router got away from my guide. I really like your wood sides. I haven’t done that to mine but I should. Then again, I’ll admit I probably never will!

Thanks for comments.
I added the wood sides for two reasons.
I had to have a way to bolt to the saw,
and
I wanted something stronger to put the screws that go through the wings.

The biggest draw back to this design is you have to be careful to not put too much weight on the router table or the saw can tip.

BTW, the dust port for he vacuum hose is almost useless. Most of the dust goes down on the floor.
I’m going to try to adapt some way to catch the dust under the table.

Have you thought about putting a support piece like a small leg under it under the center ,where it won’t be in the way but keeps it from being able to tip if you accidentally put too much weight on it? Maybe something on a hinge that you could tuck up when you don’t want it down.
