Well I have been so focused on getting my new old Unisaw tweaked and settled in it’s new home I forgot that I need some essentials for it’s operation. I wanted to fire it up and try and cut some big slabs of birch butcher block to test its power, but I realized one thing…they are big pieces and I don’t have an out feed table!

Now it was time to attach the shelves and sub top. I set up another hillbilly out feed table similar to the other one so I didn’t bother photographing the sheet ripping and cross cutting process. I had to cross cut the sheet with a circular saw and a straightedge but it came out perfect…well actually I was 1/16” too long so I hit it with my router and a flush cut bit and a starightedege..and then it was perfect!..
