Followed a bunch of LJs advice for this table top and adjustable fence. Top is laminated particle board trimmed with scrap oak, and the fence is made with scrap maple. I added an insert to make the table flush on with the fence removed. It works perfect, thanks for the tips guys.

Sweet. The tables that come with these saws are always too small !!

A very nice job on this.

Question——does the new table fit on the old one or did you remove the old one? Thanks.

It fits over the old table and has a slider that fits in the miter slot, I loose a bit on the height thus way but so far I don’t do much resaw.

You’ll like the larger bandsaw table sled (that’s what I call it) gives you so much more room to work….I’ve had one on mine for about 3+ years I built for mine….Stellar job on the build…....

Great work! I just picked up a 10” Craftsman band saw from my neighbor but the platform is not stable, plus it’s a pretty small work surface. Looking for ideas on how to remedy / improve it.
