I finally finished my table. My room is limited so I tried to make it as versatile as possible. I put it on wheels that can be leveled because sometimes I need to pull my table saw out further to cut large stock. I can also pull it away from the saw to work all the way around it. I used 5/4 maple stock on 3/4 ply and 3/4 MDF. It’s trimmed with 8/4 by 6” maple with dog holes and a large vise. I hand planed the top (whew!). I also installed 4 drawers as well as jig storage underneath. I tried to use bulldog brackets for the wheels but they collapsed so I beefed it up with 3/16 angle iron. Finished with 4 coats Arm-R-Seal and a couple coats of wax to reduce any friction. So far it works like a dream!

Looks great ! Having a multipurpose worksurface is a must in a small shop…

That is indeed very nice! I like how you mounted the rails/casters. Will keep that design in mind for future shop needs :)

Hand planed the top… glutton for punishment, eh?! That’s a stout looking outfeed table, very nice!

Awesome… you wouldn’t happen to have a SketchUp drawing of that build would you? If so, can you share it?

Impressive to say the least! Is this a brainchild of your own of are there plans? This is exactly the style outfeed/workbench table ive been looking for. The mobility, fuctionality and durability is ideal for my needs and I would love some feedback. Any help in that aspect would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks for all the positive comments on my table. That’s why I like using this site! I did not use any plans to build this project. I knew the purpose of the table and built it around the space I needed. I started from the ground up and made changes as I went. My top was the last part of the project.
