I always like trying to make the most of limited space and keep my shop layout at open as possible. This project definitely meets the goals as well as making my table saw much easier to use. I drew upon ideas I got from looking at all of your shop projects and added a few of my own to the mix. I hope this helps out someone else like the previous projects helped me.

Features of this table saw station:
1. 24” wide outfeed table Allows ~70” rip without additional support Perfectly flat top with 2” overhang for easy assembly (torsion box topped with 1” mdf)
2. Sliding cabinets that pull out from the table to add another 20” of table space
3. Cabinet tops flip up to give access to mortise and tbd tool
4. 20” raised platform to extend outfeed support to >8’
5. Mini cabinet for table saw accessories and easy access to featherboards, rollers, and a storage slot for the rip fence

I wish I built this a long time ago. Only problem is that I now have an unused, easy access, storage space for another bench-top tool. Hmm….

I wish I had the space for an out feed table like yours. Must make cutting up large plywood sheets much easier.

Nice job, nothing like space for a new tool or two.

Nicely done and excellent use of space. I recently gotten serious about opening up shop space too, and it is a much nicer place to work and hang out.

Super nice setup. Storage and tabletops to boot.

Is that a giant router on the end in black or what it looks heavy duty? Alistair

There is a router table back there, but it’s just a standard portercable 15amp router. The big black thing that might look like a router is just a junction in my dust collection system.
