I currently have a folding out-feed table but I have been considering building a rolling table that can be used as an assembly table as well.

I have a small garage shop so space is a premium. Everything must be mobile as the wife parks her car in the middle of it every night.

There are advantages to a folding table because it is attached to the saw and well….It folds down.

The disadvantage is that it is a light weight structure and you can’t really beat on it if you use it as an assembly table (as I frequently do) also it gets in the way if you need to access the rear of the saw.

I use mine in conjunction with my workbench too.

Mine is built with door hinges and I have, on occasion, pulled the pins and removed it.

Excuse the old pictures but hopefully it will help give you some ideas.

If I had the room I would like to have a couple of tables that could be used as both an assembly table and an out-feed table but…....

-- When you leave your shop for the night, make sure you can always count to 10.
