Although I referenced Boy Van Dyke’s Fine Woodworking Magazine article about his multi-use RIP fence jig in a prior blog post, I thought I should include more photos showing the melamine fence that I bolt to the RIP fence jig in order to cut my tenons on my Saw Stop table saw. I made two versions of this melamine fence; one is the height specified in the magazine’s article. The other fence is two inches taller than the magazine’s article.

I also implemented Bob’s tenoning jig that slides along the melamine fence. I smeared the fence and the jig with paste wax so it moves smoothly over the fence.

A close up view of the tenoning jig that slides along the top of the melamine fence.

I used glue and screws to fasten this lip to the tenoning jig. I believe Bob Van Dyke used simply a tongue joint with glue.
