I, too, am in the midst of outfeed/assembly table project after I tidy up swapping from metal HVAC to PVC dust collection ducting.
My table length will be the length of my Unisaw and around 37”-38” deep so that I can cut 8’ long pieces without them teetering over the edge (this would give 4’ of outfeed table length).
I have some 4”x6” to use up as legs. I’ll be going mortise and tenons with drawboring everything. My only concern is the underneath and if it is to be mobile. I have had my fair share of mobile carts in my shop which I am now trying to stay away from. As to underneath usage, that will add more weight if it is to be mobile. I know all too well what happens when you make a mobile structure and it weighs heavily. Yet, that is wasted real estate that can be used up.
I’ll be going along the same lines as ATCERIC’s project .
MDF torsion box top, T-Track, possible air compressor and hose underneath. Maybe clamp storage.
We shall see. I have some more DC stuff to tidy up, then I’ll think more upon this outfeed table project.
