Can anyone think of any potential issues with using a commercially made 2-1/4” (or 1-3/4” for that matter) thick maple butcher block as a right side table saw extension wing? My preference is to remove the existing cast iron extension wing which is not the flattest and replace with the maple that will also allow me to lengthen it to match the fence rails. I’d like to eliminate another joint in the table which is another reason for removing the cast iron wing in favor of the one piece maple.
I know Global Industrial sells them along with Grizzly and of course I could make one.
I ultimately may like to install a simple router setup with it to serve as a secondary router table to my current Jess-Em system – no frills, just a router lift and basic fence.
Any thoughts? Thanks for any input.
