I became so frustrated with the existing fence (tubular rails) clunking down the rails just to get an inaccurate cut i came up with this half assed acrylic thing….I only say this because i did all the recessed holes by hand and not the drill press because my DP is a POS. It stalls if you look at it the wrong way. They could have been recessed “properly” had i done it that way but i plan to Bondo up the holes and avoid any potential snagging.

Materials Used:
5/16” bolts
1/2” sheet of acrylic cut to size
7/8-1” Forstner bit
Scrap piece of Mahogany backer board

In a nutshell, thank god for the Jawhorse…I made the plastic metal wood sandwich then clamped it all together and went to town drilling through and aligning the three plates. Very simple project yet deceptively easy to screw up…

Hopefully there are some items in the background readers might be curious about….thats always been my favorite thing about looking at peoples shop photos i.e. whats that a picture of?? or is that blood on the wall or paint?
