This holyday I find time to make a tenoning jig for my good old Metabo tablesaw.
Its made of 18mm A-grade birch plywood with a hard wearing Formica surface on both sides so al moving parts will slide precise and effortless, even without a micro adjustment. To hold the workpiece firmly in place I used the fantastic Bessey auto-toggle clamp. The large black knob, that came of a office chair, also service as a push-stick to move the jig forward. And the large red handle I had laying around in the shop for years finally find its proper use.
After some small adjustments and a view test cuts its work really well.

Very nicely done! I agree with the use Baltic birch with Formica surfaces—the combo makes for a great jig.
