I wanted a simple and lite out feed table that could double as a construction table. I was able to use 1/2 and 3/4 plywood left over from my kitchen cabinet project. I used 1/2 MDF for the top. I will polyurethane the top to protect it from any liquid spills. I used 10-32 flat heads to secure the MDF to the 1/2” plywood underneath.

The plans I drew up show slots alll way through. The notches seemed like a better approach as they leave a smoother work surface. The table does not have wheels, and I do not think I will added any, but it was designed to use the now infamous Norm Flip UP Wheels.

Quick note – I used a step drill to make the C’Sink for the flat head. This has proven to be a quick way to get screws to recess slightly.

I like your design very much———clean and simple and very functional——-do you have any plans to add shelving under the table?

I will probably add a shelf to hold the cut offs that are too good to throw away. I also need to find a place to store all the saw accessories in a spot near the saws. The table may be that spot.

Nicely done! I like your approach for the Leg Structure. It’s probably Very Strong and at the same time keeps the Weight way down as compared to 2×4’s and/or 2×6’s.

Great table!
Is it practical to put something like this on casters?
I need an outfeed table badly, but need to be able to move it.
