I just finished my new outfeed/work bench all that is left is to trim around the inset top which is melamine entirely 3/4 plywood except top 52”wide x 85”long. Ripley’s Believe it or not, but the top just dropped in when my Grandson and I dropped that 3/4 piece of melamine on the frame. The idea came from the Wood Whisperer you tube # 30 titled Somebody feed me. All that is needed there now is the awaited Incra TSLS-32 Table Saw Fence which probably won’t happen until Black Friday sales

Very good. I built one like it. I have discovered a problem however, when you are working on a project, you can’t cut anything long on the saw. Minor problem.

you are right, but I will compensate. I was cutting last night, and I just love it. I have another 4 ft. Sq. bench not as nice, but will work when needed when working on projects.

Nice job. That’s a popular design; quick to build and sturdy. :-)

That’s a nice out feed table; you’re going to love having it. I built a similar one based on Wood Whisperer and it really has been a pleasure to use.

Wow! Excellent job! Love your shop by the way! Very cool looking area. One thought: are you going to rout out extension mitre gauge slots? As it is in the pictures you won’t really be able to push your miter gauge all the way past the blade. Maybe you already have done this, if so, sorry. Just noticed it in the pictures.

Great job!

Great table. It is as big as the entire open floor area of my shop

I would like to answer a couple of questions regarding my new outfeed table, First let me say I am over whelmed with the many people who have even looked at it and made comments as of this morning 927 people have either viewed or commented on it I have been asked if I am going to put miter gauge slots in it. My first thought was how often do I use the miter gauge and another thought is wait until I put on my new Incra table saw fence. Then another question I received was can you turn tilt your blade. I really wondered about that as soon as I got the question I ran down to the shop and checked yes I can my saw tilts right and can tilt the full 45 degrees. Love the attention it is getting. Will be put to use today as I start a new project. Thank you,Bob

Good job Bob.
The table looks very nice.
I very rarely use a miter gauge but I use the slots int he table for other jigs and I believe that you will have to cut them int he table also.
