This is a project I finished awhile back but forgot to post. This table sits on my sawhorses and can be setup in just a couple of minutes. When not in use it easily fits up against the wall and leaves plenty of room to pull both cars in and still be able to walk around them. Since I took these pictures i also added a place to mount a router in the corner. It’s not perfect but it works well for what I need.

Awesome.
The creativity in terms of the larger fence is really cool.
How does the fence function? It looks like it more clamps around the tabletop versus riding on some rail. Cool concept indeed.

And hey, what matters is that it works for you!

The fence is actually the part I’m least happy with at the moment. It works but it can be a pain to get aligned over such a long surface. It has a toggle clamp on the near side in the picture that clamps to the underside of the table and I put a C Clamp on the other after getting it as parallel to the blade as possible. I had originally planned to cut slots in the table top to allow for the fence that came with the saw to be used but because of how i am suspending the saw from the table top I’m now afraid that cutting those slots will weaken the table to much. Some day I’ll get back to this to make it how I really want but now I’ve got other projects going so it can wait.

Thanks for the compliments!

Just a thought I had from seeing something on Pintrest.
Saw a guy do the same thing, but what he did was get one of those Emerson straight edge clamp things and build his fence up from that.
Seemed to work well and might solve some of the problems you mentioned.

I have that saw and not happy with the work infeed, if nothing else I need to think thru your approach on that.

That is basically my only problem with the saw too. For most jobs its not an issue but if i try to use a sled it can be a little sketchy. I added 10” to the infeed with my table which might be overkill but I haven’t had any problems with it yet.

I LOVE my Dewalt and the fence to me is the best part to it so to take it off is???
I do mostly models so don’t need or want the big tables but years ago I built cabinets for a living so can see where a bigger table is needed, so can’t you incorporate the strong part of this saw into your table.
Here's a fence add on I use when needed for longer stronger fence.
