Its a short outfeed table for a small shop. It is 12 inch long and 34. Its all made from russian birch. It is surprisingly sturdy. I thought having the back leg bent would allow the table to move but once the ajusting bolt is set and the knobs are tightened its solid enough. My table saw is on a mobile base so I had to come up with a design so I can fold it on its self and still be able to move it around. Cheers

Great project. It increases the safety of the saw, and the sides of the pieces being cut won’t get dinged as they move away from the blade. I always have trouble finding time to do shop projects … nice that you made the time, as this will pay you dividends every time you turn on the saw. I need to remember that!

Did you work from plans or is this your own design. The reason I ask is that this is exactly what I have been looking for!

Hi Jim, I came up with the design I couldnt find anything online like it. Most outfeed table I saw were for cabinet table saw not contractor table saw. Depending on what table saw you have the dimensions may vary. My first prototype was made out of spruce from 2X4 just to get the rough dimension of the piece that fold on it self. The clearance underneath the motor also dictates the lenght of the table. But there a little bit of trial and error but I recommend using scrap wood at first. Hope this was helpful
