There are so many variations of outfeed tables on LJ and I’d like to thank everyone who has posted for various inspirations. After studying many designs/styles, I decided on this one for my new Sawstop PCS saw.

The cabinet is 3/4” birch ply and all joints are dados set 1/4” deep. The top is 2 layers of laminated 3/4” MDF and 3/16” hardboard sheets.

I have read where a lot of folks make the top replaceable in case it is damaged. I chose not to do that. This one is on there for good!

There are 2 drawers on one side that are 20 & 24” deep. The opposite side is open (think of the Ron Paulk workbench). I also added cabinet doors on each side to house the air compressor. The large 44 wide x 24 deep drawer is for my most used small tools and instruments. Rather than create fixed dividers for the drawer, I made some small boxes from 1/4” MDF and “hot glued” them together and added some “cushiony, non-slip drawer stuff I found at the big box.

All exposed plywood edges were banded with oak strips cut to 1/4” thick. The top was banded with 3/4” oak.
While trying to decide on the finish to use, I came across some stain called “Cabernet” and I decided that would make a nice contrast to the clear poly on the birch ply. (kind of reminded me of purple heart) I really like the wine color and it really brought out the grain in the oak.

This project sure taught me what a real challenge it is to handle glue-up and clamping on large cabinet panels.
Thanks for looking and let me know what you Lumberjocks think.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments.

kdc68 – for the last 6-7 weeks I’ve been “relocating” the shop tools and adding a new dust collection system. I’m proud of the way it has progressed and when I’m finished, I will post some workshop pics. You can see the new Sawstop TS here and where the new outfeed table is going.

Very nice out feed table and great setup on your workshop. But pic 6 of the out feed table is way too neat, where is the challenge of going through every drawer or shelf in your workshop to find something….lol.

Looks good. Do you have another shot that shows you miter saw set up. Planning to build something similar myself. How do you like the DC hood?

Noodle – The Rousseau 5000 dust collection hood is working great for me. I’ve tried several different methods of containing dust at the miter saw and this one is the best so far. It’s BIG and tied into my new DC it’s doing what I want. Here is a link that I visited before making up my mind to try it.

Also here is my miter saw station build (and thanks for looking). Glad to answer anything I can.

Thanks again to everyone! (I love this place)

Do you remember what brand of stain it is that you used? I love the cabernet color you got on the oak, I’d love to try it out myself.
