I finally got around to building an out feed/router table for my table saw.

I still have to band three of the edges as had a slight mishap with the Formica top and ended up a little short on materials. I did learn one important thing about working with Formica and contact cement, make sure things are aligned before the pieces touch.

I still need to route a spot for the router plate which I still need to purchase along with a good router. At that time I will make a drawer and door to close up the opening. I made some blocks to act as guides for the table top which allow me to remove the top making it easier to move when the time comes. I will be making some shelves to divide up the storage spaces however I am not sure how I want to divide the spaces up yet.

Overall the project took me a full weekend with a few additional hours spent to gather necessary supplies.

It looks too clean you should scratch it up some. On my outfeed table I cut two dattos so my miter guage will work without having to move the table. You will really enjoy that extention the first time you cut up a 4X8 sheet.

Actually, it is funny you should mention adding dattos, after I went to use my crosscut sled I realized I needed to add them. I took these pictures before I added the datto slots. Now I just need to find a bargain on a router insert and router for the table. I am sure it will receive a lot of abuse over the years.

Nice Mark.
Now you’ll have to buy some more tools, so you can fill that extra storage space.
