« Part 31: Bench update Part 32 of Evolution of a Shop series Part 33: Bandsaw dust collection »

This started out as another workbench, but got modified into an outfeed table. 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.

Here you can see a french cleat I attached to the side to hold a mallet, some risers, my hearing protection, and a brush.

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.


Cross cut:

Thanks for looking!
