Even though I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been busy. I’ve had a lot of built-in projects around the house and a few furniture pieces, too. Between those projects, I try to take some time to work on the shop. Here’s my new outfeed table, which is still a work in progress:
It’s still got the top from my old table, which is undersized. I plan on making a new top when time allows. This table takes better advantage of the space I’ve got around the table saw and gives me a lot of storage for my parts bins and systainers.
Here are some build pictures:
The base is 2×4’s and MDF with casters that engage when levelers are lowered.
This side will get drawers to hold power tools.
I haven’t decided if I’m going to close this side up around my compressor or make more drawers.
On the side that faces away from the table saw, I cut a bunch of dadoes 3” apart so that I could insert 1/4” MDF panels to separate the parts bins and systainers. If I had it to do over again, I would have chosen 2” apart.
And here’s my new shop cart which is the same height as my table saw. All of my built-ins were done with MDF or ply. This makes cross cutting those large sheets much easier. The center section is designed to hold systainers and parts bins. The ends are sized for plastic bins. Construction was all 1/2” plywood for base and 3/4” ply for top.
Thanks for looking!
