Hard to tell in that one photo, ,but is there an actual table saw under there? Or just a hand-held circular saw mounted upside down?

That’s certainly showing ingenuity, Adam. I got by for a long time with a Sears Craftsman table made an inverted circular saw. It worked fairly OK as long as I spent plenty of time aligning it in the clamps underneath. The only problem was that I often needed it off the table, so I was forever installing and uninstalling the saw.

Looks very good Adam. Do you have any bracing behind the fence?

Nice work! – I’d SERIOUSLY recommend building in a riving knife! Well done though!

Good idea! Nice work again on the saw. I think I may end up making one that’s similar!

Okay Adam, here is an example of bracing on a fence: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73077 Scroll down to the second photo. The right triangles are bracing the back of the fence against deflection when pressure is applied to the face of the fence. Your fence doesn’t have any bracing that can be seen in your photos. Adding braces will help make certain you get straight cuts.
