A few people asked about my out feed table and workstation so I posted some pictures of it. It is approximately 6’x8’ and made out of some cherry cabinets that i made for another project but did not use. I installed a 50” Beismeyer Fence that I bought at my local tool supplier and my Rigid Table Saw (for now) and I made the table saw section big enough to replace the saw with a cabinet saw later. I have not decided whether or not to put drawers of leave the cabinets open or put doors, which will come later.

Thanks for looking and I hope that answers some of the questions.

That’s awesome! I am going to do something very similar but a but longer and a tad narrower. I still don’t understand how your rip fence attaches

Good looking set up. I am retired Navy AE. I flew on P2V-7, C-118 load-master, C9 crew chief. Some of the best days of my life.

The rip fence is attached to a 1”x5” oak facia that is attaced to the table. The key was lining up the front of the table saw and the facia so the fence would line up and fit flush all the was across.

Sweet! I have been needing to do something like this for a loooooooong time. I’ve got an old (50’s) Craftsman contractor that grandpa had and I added a 50” rail & t-square fence (Shop Fox) but, I haven’t really taken the time to make a really “good” station for the saw. This gives me some good ideas…..thanks for sharing.

The Beismeyer fence does not require a back rail. It fits tight to the table by locking to the front rail. This is really a great fence system and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an accurate fence for a resonable price.

That’s a whole lotta work space. Your saw should feel spoiled with all that around it. Love the top…..........
