Router table extension wing for table saw, made from 3 pieces of 15mm mdf laminated together and framed with pine.

For some reason the mdf warped after glue up, maybe i had it thicker in some parts, i used my veritas jack plane with 50 degree blade and got it flat as a tack in no time.

I used 40mm pipe for the fence for dust extraction, it goes into a small space behind the router centre and work really well, when cutting rabbits hardly any dust gets out.

The fence fits of my table saw fence, its a little rough looking but its square and seems strong.

Cheers
Warren

Great use of the end of the table saw. I have one and love it. The fence looks good, although it would benifit you if you were able to move the faces side to side for different sized bits. I’m contantly moving mine while using different bits. Nice work, enjoy!

Great looking extension, and a very good use of space.

Looking good Warren, what’s underneath the router? Anything for dust collection?

Hi Bryan, i have a bosch router its not the best in the world but it has dust extraction built in to it, it does work well if im cutting daddos or mortises if the fence is not near the cut. I will probably connect a y fitting so fence and router and run at same time.

Warren, This table and fence looks great. I need to build one similar. The dust collection setup on the fence is interesting. Can’t see from the pictures how it was done. Do you have any plans/details on how that was done?

Hi DW833, sorry i did not do a plan just made it up as i went along. The fence is just sits over the saw fence and then some ribs with 40mm holes for PVC pipe that goes to a box behind the router bit in the centre of the fence. It does work very well gets just about everything that goes past it.
