    Made myself one of these 2 weekends ago. Skipped the bit poking out the top and just cut the hanging hole onto the middle of the work surface . Pretty small and near the back so does not cause issues but saves space and wood. Used a bunch of scrap I had hanging around. Made has a bit over 50cm of cutting width and 65-70mm of depth .

    So easy to do, super cheap and very effective.

    I used a longer narrower board cut in half as that is what I had on hand. I also used Alu T extrusion rather than L as it was cheaper and more ridged but I did need to trim one down to make space for the saw motor.

    Sure.

    Made this last weekend with the Jig. Turned out alright but I need to work on my planing skills.

    Made mostly from bulk collection scrap bar the wheels, screws which I bought or consumables which I had on hand.

    Made from mostly structural timber.

    Used the jig to cut everything to length as well and trimming the while board once everything was glued and planed.
