I made the one in the post above, it works great for me and the drift angle adjustability makes blades cut like they’re supposed to. Very easy to make too. I added a bolt to the miter gauge and with a wing nut it makes it easy to clamp down without using a bar clamp. One thing I might change is cutting a square recess around the blade for replaceable zero-clearance inserts, but the kerf in the auxiliary table itself hasn’t gotten wide enough to suck pieces down anyway.
This is right after I made it so the fence piece is just clamped to the miter gauge but it’s screwed on there now.

This is how the miter gauge is held in place.
