This is my new bandsaw table.

It all started with a piece of phenolic plywood and a piece of maple. But it’s all done now. :=)

I blogged the build here:

I’ll just add pics from the attachment of my table to the cast iron table…

...and the alignment of the Incra scales to the blade:

Thanks for stopping in. DG

Wow David, that is a very nice BS table, it looks too nice to be a tool.
Looks like a BS table come Bistro table …... ideal for some good coffee and a baguette….mmmm.

Exceptionally nice. Well done.

just curious, but it seems the dado cuts for the mitre gauge stop at the trim around the outside. How do you slide the mitre guage? Seems like it’s going to hit the Maple trim.

Very nice table though….i would definelty love one, (if i had a bandsaw)......

@JohnG, You are very perceptive. This is from the blog “All that’s left is final attachment, fill and finish the brad holes, cut the slide bar on the miter gauge nearly all the way off, and calibrate (zero) the Incra T-track Plus rules to the blade.” ;=)

Nice table. Was going to ask the same as John_G, but then you answered it.

Just finished restoring a 1940 something Walker Turner 16” Band Saw that has issues with it’s table.
The table can no longer tilt, and it doesn’t go all the way to the back of the throat.

Building a table top will be a great solution.
