Great Idea, Gene!

Wish my table say had a solid wing. Maybe I could make a cross brace to capture below the webs in the wing.

Thanks for sharing!

PS- I like the red warning areas, too!!

Gene: A great addition of a couple of safety items. The feather board and the red warning areas.

I am curious, why didn't you make the feather board to work with the miter slot?

dbhost,
With the slotted way that I have made it, I can run stock twice as wide as you can with a regular feather board mounted in the miter slot. Plus it cost relatively nothing to make. Thanks for the question.
God bless

Seen a lot of feather boards, but your red warning areas are a fantastic idea! Bet you have at least half of your fingers!

Real good featherboard. As it happens I'm making one tomorrow as I need it for a particular job. Did have one sorted but having seen yours I'm going that way instead. Like a comment before I'm not sure why I can't use my T slot with bolts and still have a slot in the timber for different sizes of stock, but I'm probably missing something, it'll probably all come clear when I make it. Just got to find that old tin of red paint. Thanks for sharing Gene.
