Hello Lumberjocks,

I have started 2 projects prior to becoming a member. I haven’t got to far. So, I would like to share their progress with the forum.

I have a few projects under my belt, but I consider myself a beginner. So, please, bare with me, the techniques, and the progress.

The projects are an out-feed table and a dual purpose extension table for my Delta 10” contractor table saw.

The extension table with also serve double duty as a router table. It will replace the commercial extension table, that came with the table saw, that has seen better days.

The out-feed table is out of necessity. I learned the second time around that I needed an out-feed table when my sheet goods hit the floor.

The previous home owner was “kind” enough to leave behind his “workbench”. This thing was unstable and unsafe. The good things about it was the top. It was bad of an old heavy solid door. Not solid wood mind you. It was particle based material trimmed in solid wood and veneered. I disassembled the old workbench. I have to admit, I think i pulled something trying to move that old door. Not so much my groin, as it was my pride. LOL. I will be using a good chunk of the door for the out-feed table. Being green, I use a lot of reclaimed materials.

I also plan to user oak to trim the tables. For the legs, I may opt for a less expensive species.

Check back and see the progress.

There are of course roller stands to support the ends of lumber behind the saw, also.

Yes, there are roller stands. I have them. But let’s face it… an out feed table is far more efficient and effective. I have the room for it. I may as well take advantage of it.
