« Part 6: Almost ready to mount Part 7 of Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table series Part 8: New Router Fence »

Got the top installed yesterday.

Not happy with the finish, though. But it’ll work. I could have saved a tremendouns amount of time by finishing with epoxy only. Two coats would have probably done it. As it is, i just keep sanding through in spots. But you can’t really tell.

First time I moved the fence, though, the plastic pad the fence slides on scratched it up, due to 15 years of debris embedded in the nylon. So, I took it off, chucked it in the lathe and faced it up so it was nice and clean, and smooth.

Routing the holes to expose the T-Nuts was a little tricky, and no one will notice where I had a little trouble finding them. :-) Now I need to make up some featherboards and a new fence. I’ll get the phenolic for the plate glued up this week, so I can get a router mounted.

Now I need to design a cabinet for blade storage, and table support. Also need to put my miter gauge in there, since I no longer have the clearance to get it on the hanger under the table.

I really appreciate seeing someones vision come together.
This is one of those “who cares how long it took and what it cost me, I did it”.
I have done a few projects that I spent a lot of time and effort on in order to prove to myself it’ll work.
I can see you enjoy challenging yourself and trying new methods.
Great job, Thank you for sharing this table.
