band saw extension table and fence

I made this extension and fence for my old 14 in Delta It works well. what I'm particularly pleased with is what for me is a unique fence clamping system. When you turn the handle clockwise, the bolt pulls toward you and forces a rectangle of thin wood into a convex cavity so that its outer edges push away from you against the fence, thereby locking it tight. What took the longest to do was to attach oak banding all around to hide the plywood edges. I'm posting it here on the hand tool site because all the oak was glued on proud and planed smooth against the faces of the plywood and MDF.
