Nothing fancy but practical for me. Finally after a year or so of me getting my shop equipped with some equipment, I decided to make a practical work bench/table saw extension table. It is rough, but seems to work for me so far. I don’t do a lot of big projects yet so this will work for now, until I see one of you guys make a work bench or table that I think I need to make.

Table is really nice. Ton of space there.

Just wondering, is there a splitter behind your saw blade? Hard to tell in the pics.

No splitter, just the blade. I had a blade guard on, but just made a really rough table saw sled, not even close to good enough to post on this site, but it works really good.
thanks for looking.

Sleds are good and safe….I never built a good one, so I bought an Osbourne EB-3…HAHA.

BTW, I have the same Dewalt planer you do the 734….those suckers are workhorses. I had it’s daddy, the 733, and it worked great for many years before I sold it to get a 3 blade planer.

I bought the planer used a few months ago, and have used it a lot on my small projects. It really works good, don’t know what I would do without one now.

Looks good, i’m designing a very similar one that will probably be a torsion box construction for the top and will post it when(if) I ever get it done!

Nicely done. This is on my short list. I’ve got a little “portable” (read: affordable) tablesaw that I really run in to capacity problems with.

That’s a really practical & well done project.
