I have a bastardized assembly table set up comprised of a modified outfeed table and a couple of 2×4 benches with melamine on top of them. I bolted the benches together and added a cleat for the outfeed table to rest on in an attempt to get everything flat. No such luck. One table or another is always off. My suggestion is to make an assembly table that is all one piece that can be rolled into place and easily attached/aligned with the TS. You get storage and mobility as well as an outfeed table. There are some really nice plans out there for just such a beast. I think I bought a set from Peachtree but they are probably Taunton Press.

Originally I had a fold down only on the TS but it seemed like it was always tipping out of level with the TS so the back end was lower than the TS creating problems with anything that was pushed past the end of the saw.

One of these days I will be putting my money where my mouth is and building the mobile outfeed / assembly table/storage unit.
