no previous part Part 1 of Shop Projects series Part 2: Outfeed/Assembly Table - Storage »

As I was looking into different options for an outfeed table I 1st looked at mounting a swing-away style, one that mounts to the table saw frame, but after further research it looked like a better option was to create a new outfeed/assembly table and kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.

I decided on a Ron Paulk inspired design with some other additions gleaned from around the web. Using SketchUp I went about layout what I kind of wanted…

The lower framework is made up of kiln dried 2×4

Initially I planned on creating a new cabinet for my table saw as well, but time constraints has put that off, and because of that I had to change my design of the table and incorporate the brackets show here for the wheels. Doing this, instead of mounting them on the bottom of the framework will keep the table 1/2” below the table saw.

Once that design change was taken care of I went about building the semi-torsion box top with the “Ron Paulk” style openings for storage. This is all done with 3/4” plywood. I created a template for the openings and using a guide bushing with a spiral upcut bit it was pretty simple to cutout all the openings with my router.

Next up will be some type of edge banding around the perimeter of the plywood and then it’s on to creating the bank

of drawers.

i’m curious on the wheels. are those leveling feet enough to stabilize and hold the weight of the table? i’m currently in the process of designing something similar, but smaller.

looks great so far. i may ‘borrow’ some of the ideas you ‘gleaned’.

The levelers are rated for 2000 lbs and so far seem to be working well. They can be run up and down with a 5mm allen wrench
