I don't know if anyone will find this interesting or not but this is my table mod.
The aluminum T-slot table just wasn't practical for me. I like to use drywall screws to secure jigs and hold downs for the panels I cut. With a piece of MDF for a spoilboard I had to be careful that the screws didn't bottom out on the aluminum table.
The table came off in one piece because of the glued on black plastic strips, and I cut a piece of plywood the same size and used cross pieces of scrap boards I had laying around to screw the plywood to.
I had to prop the cross pieces up with blocks to hold them in place until I got screws down through the plywood .
Now I can screw stuff down without worrying about hitting the aluminum.

Yeah I have done something similar.
Plus the mill on my CNC doesn't reach the bed anyway so the scrap wood builds it up.
