My DP table is a good height I’ve found for sketch ups and such. Made from 1/4” mdf and some oak trim. A saw kerf hooks it into the fence t-track and gives good slope. It simply unhooks and its off to resume making holes in stuff. I added some Danish for color.
Update: I added a metal adhesive tape measure to the top. Very convenient addition.
