Homemade Rip Cut Guide for the Workbench

I 've finished the Rip Cut Guide to make parallel cuts with my workbench. If you are interested in seeing how it works, you will see it in action in this article:

Hi Suso, first of all I came across your channel looking for idea's and it just pops out in terms of accuracy and craftsmanship. I am planning to built the Mobile workbench with table saw. The problem is I have some very basic tools and am very limited in space. Is there a possibility to 'replace' the saw table with a track saw setup, or do you recommend against it? Peter Millard his channel uses some hinged guide rail and seems to be able to get some nice straight cuts. Your setup seems to be more versatile though. Any thoughts you could share please?

Kind regards from Holland.

hi WindyCity,
you can adapt the design to your needs and make a track saw station. You will only have to put a board cover in place of the bench saw. That way, if someday in the future you want to incorporate the bench saw, you can do it!
