This DIY project is a great opportunity to make something you’ll use, and maybe even learn some new skills. I made two different table saw fence handles out of curly maple. One I power carved to fit the contour of my hand and finished naturally with a hardwax oil. The other handle I drew inspiration from luthiers and dyed it black, finishing in a high gloss lacquer. Kinda the Paul Reed Smith of table saw fence handles.I also tried a new method of wet sanding I’d never seen before with pretty good results.
