Finally getting to some projects and in whole, getting the shop set up. We moved a couple years ago this past January into this house and hadn’t had a chance to get shop in place (wedding, summer projects, list goes on). I did build the wall in the garage a while back and had that part taken care of. What I wanted was to truly focus on “shop projects” and not much else until I got things to a point where I felt somewhat pleased. Here is one of those must have projects I just wrapped up a few weeks ago. The idea is obvious, just made it to suite my needs and wants. So far I can say that I love it – it’s just nice having the support for the saw and also the deep surface for working on. On this project, as well as some others you’ll see once i get them posted that there’s a pattern, ambrosia/wormy maple. Reason for that was that I bought it for $1.10 a board/ft varying widths, up unto 15 inches, it was all at about 4/4, little shy. Looks too nice at times, but I enjoy it and at that price, who cares. In case anyone cares – drawers are 24 and 30 inches deep. Slides used on this were from Amazon, Pro something or the other. They’re okay, not nearly as good as the KV slides I used in the miter station I built, more on that soon.

Very nice. Love this table and the storage is especially nice. I’ve been thinking about an outfeed table design for a couple years. Your table gives me additional ideas. Thanks for posting.

Thank you for all the feedback. One thing I did forget to mention in the write up, the top is screwed and glued 3/4 MDF sheets. To top the MDF I used 3/16 hardboard attached with a few countersunk drywall screws. I wanted something I could replace over the years and that seemed to be the best option at only 15 dollars or so a sheet. I also left a few inches of overlap all the way around as seen and more on the side of the saw for DC. For anyone looking to build a table, I would definitely leave that overhang around the table. I’ve used that a bunch for clamping etc. and wouldn’t change that at all.

Very sweet…..You just can’t go wrong with a big out feed table and plenty of storage to go along with it…They do compliment the table saw, and adds plenty of work space when needed…..Stellar job on the build..!!!
