Showcase cover image for Spread my tablesaw wings!

Project Information

My previous wing and out feed was just a sheet of AC. It was put on by the previous owner of the saw. He had never attached the left cast iron and it was just sitting in rust. Used a product call krud kutter to kill the rust. Cleaned with simple green, WD40, and then a coat of paste wax. The right wing has an Alder frame with some giant finger joints and the actual table is 3/4 Baltic with a gloss black laminate. I don't really care for the gloss black but the lumber yard was selling a 4×8 sheet of it for $10 because of a small crack in the corner. Couldn't pass it up.

I like the gloss black laminate. Same thing Sawstop uses on their extension wings. Looks classy!!

I like it as well, and I wouldn't have been able to pass it up for that price either!

I think it looks great - I love black shiny finishes - looks elegant some how.

I like the gloss laminate, too! I'm curious how it holds up though. I noticed alot of lines on the wing of the sawstop at work. They're parallel to the blade, so I think it's from wide rip cuts, where the edge runs across the laminate.

Anyway, very nice! But I noticed your tall rip fence. Do you always have that installed? I love the added height, but I feel like there's many of times where my elbow would bump it while holding onto smaller pieces.

Harper I have installed most of the time only because the laminate on my fence is starting to peel off and I haven't replaced it yet. Maybe more shiny black for the fence too. It come in very handy for tenons though. it is set very snug between the two side of the fence without any clamps so it is very easy to pop on and off.
