Ribbed Saw Table Fillers
I like my contractor's saw just fine, except for the ribbed extension tables. The openings can be a real finger pincher when sliding the rip fence across them. After my last bruised fingernail I decided to do something about it. I custom fit some l/4-in.-thick plywood and attached it to the ribs with construction adhesive. You may have more or less space on your tablesaw than I do, but a little shimming or sanding should give you the fit you need.

Ever wondered what wood turning is all about? Here are some invaluable information on how to make beautiful items out of wood! That one little strategy from A Course In Wood Turning that I implemented not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. I had never seen anything like it! Now, keep in mind that I had tried a lot of other products up until this point. You name it, I probably tried it! That’s how desperate I was to improve my skills with wood turning.
