So the last photo here includes the original tabletop and fence. Both were made out of birch plywood from a design in wood magazine. The current tabletop is 3/4 phenolic faced 3/4 plywood trimmed with hard maple and inset with incra mitre track and t track (for the fence to run in).
Once I put the tabletop together, I realzed that my fence from the old table was not square enough to the tabletop, so I decided to make a new one. It’s 3/4 oak plywood with a plastic dust collection fixture, and a phenolic faced split face.
So far it works great, although the split face doesn’t quite line up when both tightened, because the bolts aren’t close enough to the bit… still trying to figure this out (considering that the dust collection fixture and brace preclude a bolt closer).
