Rocked a folding outfeed table for the tablesaw today. I wanted it to fold without leg supports so I can continue to keep my tablesaw mobile.

I used Rockler’s 16” Folding Shelf Brackets (reportedly holds 750 lbs each). They worked a treat.

Secured them with 6 self tapping screws. Plenty strong enough to hold up to outfeed table abuse.

Nicely done Matt!
I like how you clipped the corners. Smart move.

Nicely done. I have that same router table extension. Now you just need a place to store that fence rather than on the floor.

Looks great… very nicely executed.

You’ll love the confidence that a sizeable outfeed table gives you.

This is 22” x 37”
I started with a 2’x4’ and trimmed it down until it looked right.

Well done. Clever use of that hinge type…. Avoids all the hassle of affixing a piano hinge or adapter to the L bracket that supports the fence. Did you find it difficult to get the height and level aligned?

It was fairly difficult (I think I tried 3 times to get it right but that was probably due to user error Haha

I am constantly being amazed at how this community is able to do things that improve the status of their workshops just by building something with the things they already have. It’s just so wonderful to be handle with this sort of thing! Really gets me motivated to try and do some of this stuff myself!

Looks great. I was planning to do something that almost mirrors this exactly. 6 weeks in, would you have done anything differently?
