I have been itching to us my new Grizzly G0715P table saw. When I purchased it I also purchased Grizzly’s 37” outfeed system. Unfortunately, the outfeed system wasn’t compatible with this saw, even though the sale person said it was. Grizzly customer service was great and returned the item with no problems or fees.

My original plans were to make a 40” X 48” table with a melamine top. After advice from others I made a 24” X 48” table, which I can easily turn to use width or length wise depending on what I’m cutting, see pics 3 and 4. The bottom shelf is 1/2” mdf.

I made the table out of 3/4” sanded ply. The top is 1/2” birch plywood finished with 3 coats of acrylic poly. I used pocket screws where possible, but this is a shop piece so I did not use them everywhere.

The bottom of the legs have 1.5” X 1.5” X 4” hard maple blanks attached to the inside. I attached T-Nuts with 1 1/4” 3/8” bolts to make for easy leveling of the table. This also lets me easily lower the table to accept my miter gauge. I may cut grooves for the miter gauge and sled in the future. My garage floor isn’t perfectly level.

I was also happy to be able to finally re-use my old kitchen hardware, pic 5.

This is one of my first project that is not a small toy and I am very happy. I am also very happy to get away from using a 6’ plastic folding table as my main assembly table.

Very nice outfeed table.
I have 4’ x 4’ version of these on the short list.
Why did you choose to make a smaller table than you originally planned?

There were 2 main factors that went into the size change.

1. My shop is in a 2 car garage which I share with my wifes car, 40X48 wouldn’t have left me with enough room.
2. I drive a small car and can’t fit a 40X48 board in it. I would have had to cut the top. I wanted to avoid this.
