« Part 3: Table Saw update: Pt 1 Part 4 of Workshop Make-Over series Part 5: Final Configuration »

It has taken me a little longer than anticipated, isn’t always the way! Anyhow here are the layout drawings and the cutting list for the Out-feed table. The out feed table is was not a problem to build; it was a lot smaller than the other T-Box and I used the first T-Box as the base for the building the out-feed table.

I have fitted both of the tables together, levelled them and they have got there first coat of Finnish on them (Photographs next time). I have added a sketch of the two tables fitted to the table saw – showing the size.

The tables are level and relatively flat (there is some undulations especially where the two tables meet. This deviation in a planer surface is no more that 0.5mm (20 thou), I can live with that, especially since the DELTA out-feed and Side table had deviations greater that 1/8”

DELAYS – This has turned out to be a bigger job than first planned; it has affected every major machine in the shop to some degree or another. The result will be worth it, I will have more work surface and more free space. (Free space – free space – I have place for more tools {drool} now how do get them without the wife knowing???)

The big delay yesterday and today was having to reroute the dust extraction ducts and pipe work – I have shortened the system by 3m (10ft) of 6” pipe and removed a 90° elbow – so it should be more efficient??
Tomorrow, I hope to start tidying up, and take some more photographs. Monday I have to move the Band Saw and Drill press. Tuesday I start my next project (a bed)

Looking forward to seeing the photos. I need to build a smaller outfeed for my saw.

Great Job Tony. Looks like it will be very efficient.

That’s awesome, you’ll love the extra table space and outfeed support. I like it – it’s big! No more sheet good flopping on the floor…
