« Part 2: Basic top glued up and laminate installed Part 3 of Outfeed and assembly table with tool stations - small shop challenge series Part 4: Outfeed table done »

So I built the basic frame today for the outfeed table. I laminated some 2×4s for the outside legs and used one 4×4 my neighbor gave me for the center legs. The rest of the frame is just 2×4. I used levelers on each leg that I picked up recently when they were on sale at Woodcraft.

At the moment, the frame is just nailed together, but I’ll spend some time installing some bolts on the main frame pieces and then I’ll install some draw bolts for the side pieces. Between the bolts and the ply bracing it should be plenty stiff.

At the moment, the top is just set on top to get it out of the way. I still need to trim the top, round the sides, drill out the dogholes and slots and install some mounting points.

-- No honey, that's not new, I've had that forever......
