Hey all,

I had some OSB lying around and I needed an outfeed table for the Vintage Craftsman Cabinet saw that I recently put back into service so I decided to Copy Marc’s Design (The Wood Whisperer). I learned a few things during the prototype build. OSB is not a very suitable material for any kind of bench. It flexes way too much! However, it will be good enough until I can drop the coin on some Plywood to build the permanent one. Here she is:

Any suggestions for the permanent one would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
John

Looks pretty all bright white, if it works well don’t bother to change it. In the event you do change it I guess the best way is to use plywood with a laminate top that has worked excellent for my router table.

Looks pretty good, but I bet you’ll want the miter slots cut further out. Unless you’re using the world’s tiniest sleds, it looks like a lot of your cut will end with the sled still over the blade.

Derek,

You bring up a valid point. When I get to the Sled Building stage I will have to extend those.

Thanks!
