Thank you for the warm welcome everyone! I am looking forward to sharing and learning with all of you. All phases of woodworking has been my life long hobby – furniture, cabinets, sheds & decks, refinishing, restoration, and jigs & fixtures. The shop (man cave in today’s terminology) is a 2-car garage – a little crowed but easy to heat! And a nice storage shed helps a lot too!

Skylark53 – I accidentally posted this reply on your Profile but the message is intended for everyone.

Welcome to LJ Don, I saw your outfeed table photos on Phil’s forum post and was looking for more pics. I recently made one simmilar to yours but nowhere near has good looking. I wanted to see how you supported the folding section when in the down position. I uesd steel L brackets and a block.

Hi Darrell, thanks for the complement on the outfeed table!

The short-section of the table is mounted to the tablesaw with three pieces of heavy duty angle iron. I made angle iron hangers, to use existing holes on the tablesaw to mount the stretchers. The larger table is mounted to the short section with a long piano hinge.

Picture link.

The large table is supported by the two folding legs on one end, and the piano hinge on the other end. The folding legs are mounted with heavy-duty hinges.

Heavy duty hinges

The legs are locked in place with the large wing-nut as shown in this picture.

The table was not intended to be a work bench – more like a heavy-duty table.
