I am sorry. The table top size. Mine is in a 3 piece with a fence as well. I have managed to piece together the correct size of all the pieces of wood. Took some time, but I did it.

Three pce. including the fence?
i know some owners make fancy tops but if you use your RAS a lot the top is going to get chewed up. I really dislike MDF but the RAS table is one of those applications that just makes sense to use it. You might want to seal it with shellac on all sides to prevent moisture from wrecking it.

I made my top from 3/4 Birch plywood. Mine is 48" wide. Wider than factory If I remember maybe 30". The factory top was particle board I use a replaceable sacrificial 1/4" MDF cover on the top of that. There is a back board that slides then the fence board. Then the solid mounted top. I will measure mine when I get out to the shop later today. Mine is a Dewalt but I would think the dimensions are similar.

I just went and looked the front fixed table is 17 1/4" wide X 36" long the back movable board is 8 1/8" wide X 36" with a 3/4 " thick fence board. I counter sunk all the bolts and mounted with 1/4" flat head screws. Hope that helps.

Thank you all for the help. So I was able to get my table top all finished last night and put together today. my main top is 15'' next is 2 3/4 and the next is 5 3/4. So the total Depth is 24.25, just over 2 ft. my next thing I am figuring out is dust collection on it. lol. there is that nifty hole on the back, but can't seem to figure out the size or if there is an attachment for it. lol. if anyone has ideas, i would love to hear them.

Welcome to the forum ,Jeff. Maybe a separate post to introduce yourself?
