In this table fence, majority of the parts are made from a single piece of ½” plywood only and it is a it’s a good idea to measure your saw prior to getting started to determine how long the fence needs to be.

The plans were made for a table top that is 23 inches or 548mm from front to back, and if yours is bigger, you may want to make the fence parts longer to match.

For example, if your saw is 27″ or 686mm from front to back, you can add 4″ or 102mm to the fence parts to make it even longer one.

The point to note here is, before you are assembling the parts of your table fence, you need to completely cut all of the parts your table saw. Here we are list out the 5 parts which make up all the fence rail assembly are listed and explained below:

Parts j1, j2, k1 and k2 need to have a 5/8″ hole drilled in exactly the same place. To do this quickly and accurately, then you need to set up a simple jig that is clamped to my drill press table. It will hold each piece in exactly the same place without moving while you drill the holes.

Because it would be very difficult to locate the hole exactly in the center of each piece, so they need to be stacked in the right orientation so that the holes will line up, for that you can use the 5/8” bolt.

Now your table fence is ready to do the operation.
