|Winter Over-alls & Heater!!|
The last thing I completed on the table was to laminate the top pieces and add the piece along the edges to thicken the over-all appearance. Since it's 16 1/2" wide it was too wide to fit into the tablesaw sled so I had to improvise. It's always a hassle to cut wide pieces on the table saw and I might have been better off with a handsaw and router guided by a straight edge but here's what I did. A piece of wood was screwed to the miter gauge and then I clamped the top to it.

In case you're wondering, by afternoon the temperature in the shop is a comfortably in the lower 60's. Only need the heat for a short time in the morning!
