Built this a while back, just getting around to posting.

Small shop demands compact design. Though i have ideas to improve this a bit more, it has served me well since i built it 4-5 months ago. I took ideas from a collab video by April Wilkerson and Jay Bates, as they built an outfeed table for Nick Ferry here, which was a similar style The Wood Whisperer used in a couple videos.

Top is 32”x 38”, 2 layers of MDF covered by hardboard, banded in Oak.
All hardware used was salvaged from “Ikea” furniture i found on the curb, which i salvage quite regularly.

One side currently houses my pancake compressor, with accessories, in a drawer above, with a small area for Viewtainers holding some of my most commonly used screws/nails.

Other exposed side has a bank of four small drawers:

Top drawer has gluing supplies

Second has “joinery” stuff

Third is currently miscelanous

Bottom drawer is router accessories

Thanks for looking.

Love that you made your outfeed table multi-purpose. Nicely done.

Nicely done.

I’m also a small shop survivor, and very much appreciate the multi-tasking you’ve created in your cabinet. Good stuff!

Very nice design—looks like “real” furniture! And I love that the air compressor is in there.

It does provide me an opportunity to put a comment in about a birthday gift I received last year of a California Air Tools air compressor. It is so nice and quiet, you wouldn’t believe it. A solid little hummmmmm and then it’s done.

I don’t mean to detract from the great work you’ve done—just wanted to plug a great product that doesn’t demand to be stored in a cabinet because of the noise!

Very good design and craftsmanship. I need to get out of my chair and build a couple of these.

Have your say...
