This project is actually three in one – I’ve completed the first two parts of it. It comes from a book called “Projects for your Shop” by Matthew Teague. The first project is assembling the box with the three drawers in it. The second project is building the outfeed.The third is finishing with building/installing the drawers. I do still need to route the miter gauge slot extensions and figure out what I’ll be finishing it in. I modified it a bit as it calls for biscuit joins and I used a Kreg jig to do my joints. I used BC ply for the majority, but the outfeed is 3/4 oak ply. The pics aren’t the greatest as my shop is in mid-clean and I’m also attempting to get an aluminum extrusion fence installed on the TS itself among other things :) It turned out pretty decent for a shop project. Was thinking about doing a face frame around the front where the drawers are going to ‘pretty it up’ a bit, and adding a layer of paint. For now, it’s very functional! any questions let me know. Thanks for looking in!

That should make the TS much more convenient and user friendly, Beka! What is the ‘H’ looking piece in the first image? Thanks for sharing.

LOL Candy, it’s part of a stand that fell apart – glue joints gave up it appears – not sure though. I took the other two legs apart (that’s what’s under the outfeed table on the floor). Debating on if I’m going to re-make it or if the other set of legs is going to come apart as well for something else.

Looks good Beka. Hope it helps you out. I would put that face frame on the front for strength. That plywood top might want to sag a bit.
