Building a Tablesaw Outfeed Table | Easy to Build | WOOD Magazine

For safety and cut quality, workpieces should be well-supported as you feed them off a tablesaw. Jim walks you through building an outfeed table that provides ample support even for full sheets of plywood. A flip-up wing provides massive surface when needed, then folds down to a compact footprint. And for ultimate versatility, casters allow you to roll it out of the way. It even gives you pass-through storage for cut-offs or clamps.

    I really enjoy your instruction and presentation style. The project is excellent and I need to make one for my small garage workshop. Thank you 👍😎🇦🇺

    I like it but what about miter bar clearance? Are you going to move the table every time you make a crosscut with the miter gauge or a sled? Maybe you have enough room with the table being that far away but seems like you still should have addressed it.

    Awesome, great ideas to upgrade my tables setup.

    Very nice design. Thanks for including the source for casters and hinges.

    I like the general deign and may make one for my saw. I’m curious why you didn’t put slots for when you use miter gauge or other accessories that run in the slots. Without them you need to when this out of the way each time.

    I really like this and will make one. The outfeed table will also be an excellent assembly table.

    Nice design and demonstration! Why did you opt for MDF instead of plywood or other material for the surface?

    Nice outfeed table for a smaller workshop. Compact, well-built and thought out.

    Hello my friends

  14. JHans on February 27, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    Nice build. Why is the top laminated?

  15. Michael Spencer on February 27, 2022 at 11:51 pm

    Wow, I really enjoy your videos and what a great project! There was a comment about cross cutting and the runners of a sled or a miter being obstructed by the table but the table is compact, on casters and easily rolls to the side out of the way and if one would attach a folding out feed table with miter slots it’s just as much if not more trouble to fold it down when space is needed so I guess the choice would be up to the individual.

    Are these plans in the Magazine?

    I like the idea but my shop is a one car garage, therefore floor space is critical to me. So I built my router table a bit lower than the cabinet I use for my table saw and use the router table as outfeed for my table saw. Basically it is the same idea only instead of using the cabinet for storage, I use it for my router. Additionally I have a 3mm sheet that locks on the router table making it level to the table saw table. With both tables locked into each other, they make a handy assembly table if I have bigger projects to assemble.

    I love the channel. It inspires my a lot. Thx 4 sharing.

    I actually built one very similar a few years ago. It works great!
