Outfeed table

This started out as another workbench, but got modified into an outfeed table. Overall size is 32” x 56”. The base is a variation of a bench plan in FWW. I didn’t add the lower stretcher on one side so that I could slide my air compressor and parts cabinet underneath easily. The construction was pretty simple. Base is oak with walnut pegs. The top is an MDF door blank that is 1 1/2” thick. It’s wrapped in mahogany and then laminated. I used adjustable feet so that it’s exactly level with my table saw.

I didn’t want to cut miter slots in the top, so I built a bridge that goes from the saw to the table. There’s a 15” x 20” piece that slides and allows me to rip or cross cut easily.

Thanks for looking.

A lot of careful fitting went into this ! I know as I have done something similar in the past. Nice slick surfaces, slick fence and table top too. What can I say – it’s slick !

Lots of good idea here Cory. I have an Incra fence so attaching a whole outfeed table is not a real possibility. Currently using FWW’s simple bench as an outfeed/bench but this work set up doesn’t really work for using a crosscut sled. Thanks!
