While it’s only 12 inches wider than the stock wing I took off, it looks like a lot of extra table.

This morning in the cold hard light of day there were a few things I still needed to do. After sitting overnight mounted to the table saw, the phenolic top right at the joint to the saw had come up about 1mm on one side, I added an additional piece of ply to double up the skirt where it connects to the saw. I’m going to drive in a couple of pocket hole screws to make sure that joints stays nice and tight.

At a minimum it’s a nice piece of additional real estate on my saw.

And one more with my Jessem fence mounted. I typically work to the left side of my saw, so I should be able to leave my router fence on except for the widest cuts. With the fence approximately where I think the router will be, I’m only losing maybe 2 or 3 inches in cut width. Since I generally break down my ply on saw horses before cutting to final size, this isn’t a big deal for me and I mostly use my sled anyway.
