Innovative Folding Outfeed Table for The Table Saw – How to Build

In this woodworking video, I show you how to build an innovative outfeed table for your table saw.
Most table saws will benefit from a few accessories to make them safer and more convenient to use, like for wood to feed out the back of the saw, like a roller type stand, or even better, a outfeed table which is what I am building today, with some heavy duty, folding shelf brackets.

I used the same type of hinges for the wings on my miter saw cabinet
I recommend Woodglut to every beginner and not only.
oops just saw the next video. very good
It’s been awhile since you built this. Have you ever had the need for extending the miter slots into your out feed table?
I can’t help but think I would eventually lean on this, so I myself would add some fold down legs that sit against the saw, kinda like diagonal braces that fold down from the table that rest on the saw at a 45 degree angle. But I agree this is brilliant.
So where do you get the brackets
I really like you, sir you have genuine honesty about you. Keep up the good work I will be here learning from you. Thanks so much.
I been looking to try and do something like this on my sliding panel saw outfeed table.
How much flex is there at the end of the table when using these brackets?
Would be interested to see how much it deflects with how much weight.
Thanks a bunch. I just got my brackets too. I just have a table saw, so I just might go one step further and build a cabinet for it and integrate it into the design.
just finished installing mine collin,,,,it took awhile but i got it right and works good
Nice one Collin PS where’s the riving knife lol
I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this and you make it look easy…So today is the day…I’ve already got the brackets and wood so I’m all set to go. Thanks for posting this even if I am a year+ late seeing it, it is right on time for me..
Hi Colin, I made this outfield table for my contractor style table saw. I ended up making a cut out for the motor. That worked great. I ran into a problem when I tried to move the blade for a 45 degrees cut. The motor would bump into the hinge for the table top. I am having to move the let down hinge over about 7 inches. Making the bracket over is turning out to be real problem. I am making the extension out of some flat steel plate and some angel iron. I think I have it figured out. I also updated my out feed table with the lever to lower the out feed table. Thanks for the idea for the out feed table. It works great.
Excellent video and outfeed table. I’ve been wanting tome one for a long time but couldn’t find one I liked. With a small shop if needed it to fold.Thanks.
Cool idea. If but for the motor driving the belt on my old craftsman table saw, I’d make this asap!! 😆
Are you planning on extending your miter slots into the outfeed table ? I have done that so my crosscut sled continues to track straight. I have a Delta contractors saw so I have to fold motor under stand to fold down table.
Did you wax the outfeed table so that it’s slipperyer? (I may have just made up a word…)
Colin….Wow!!!! Absolutely amazing, yet so simplex. Thanks, for the great idea. Please, keep up your workshop inspiration. 🙂
what is the dimensions of the plywood top? What is the minimum depth to handle a 8ft board? I assume it needs to have about 4ft beyond the back of the saw blade.
Great idea!! I want to do this with mine. Sadly I have belt drive motor that sticks out the back. Maybe a cutout?
I did a quick internet search and found several less expensive options for the folding bracket. $52 is a bit spendy for a weekend warrior.
wish I’d seen this year’s ago. 👍🇬🇧🇺🇸
Hey Colin just wanted to say what a great detailed video building your folding outfeed table. I ended up replicating your idea and built one of my own. The only change I made was laminating all edges and top. You’re right about those brackets though, very heavy duty and more than strong enough to support anything I rip with my cabinet saw. Thx again Colin great work👍
Brilliant. I have used those brackets for several projects but didn’t think of this. Next shop project.
Burn you logo on the top of that outfield table – that would make for a great looking image.
Thanks, I made this table saw out feed table for my table saw. It works great. I have a contractors type saw so I had to remove a section and add a piece of plywood that I remove when folding down the out feed table. I also added the lever out to the edge to help lower the table. I used some captive nuts to hold the table to the brackets. I recessed the TEE nuts so they are below the level of the table. Thanks again
Your show is always the best of the best! Thank you.
Is it possible to make this without drilling into the table saw cabinet?
I been wanting to make one for mine. This make life easier for me but I own an old Craftsman 113. 2980 with a belt drive motor in front. I am not sure how to work around it.
Since you are using 3/4" plywood I think would have mounted the brackets a little closer to the sides of the plywood so I could release the brackets easier.
Just in case anybody Care. can get these off Amazon now pretty cheap as of 2020
collins what is the dimessions of the plywood you cut for the table
I did this to make a left side extension, and an outfeed table for my contractors saw and wow, what a world of difference. I used two of the same latching hinges, $29.00 per pair, Amazon, you used here. Because of the cabinet I also built, the outfeed is about an inch below the saw table but the left side extension is dead on. Thanks for the idea. johnny
How can this be modified for a small job site table saw? All of my cuts have to be picked up from the floor. 🙁
What a great idea 👍
Exactly what I need in my smaller shop. Nicely done video as well. Thanks!
Thanks for the idea. I have a very uneven workshop floor so a normal table will not work. I have a contractor saw with an exterior motor so it was a little more complex but I now have a folding outfeed table using the same brackets as yours.
Fantastic tip!! Love it. I could have a use for these brackets too
What are the self tapping metal screws that you are using here?
How accurate and rigid do you find these for 90 degrees? I’d like to use these to support a lathe extension.
I used Woodglut instructions for this and I already did it 🙂
Geez I’ve been looking at my saw all wrong, thinking how do I get it to match the level of an existing table and you just bring the table to the saw. I’ve got foldable shelf brackets in order now. Thanks!!!
EXACTLY what I’m looking for today!
Brackets are $20 on Amazon now for 16 inch
