This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans can be found in the videos description box on Youtube. I hope you enjoy this Project.. Note: The videos are a full detail step by step instructional..

Part 3
For some odd reason Part 3 doesnt want to show here so here is the Youtube link to the video.. Make a folding outfeed table part 3

That’s a great idea for show tight on space—which probably applies to most of us.

This is great as it is on my list of “things to do”. My current outfeed table does not fold, and that is rough in a small shop. Thanks for posting it!

Have you ever thought about making a shorter version of your videos? A ten minute version perhaps? I’m not saying to get rid of the longer videos, but a short video would be a nice complement to the longer one(s).

Brandon, I do make shorter videos, usually around 10 – 15 minutes or less.. But when it comes to a project like this I cant see myself butchering 6 hours of footage down to 15 minutes, the least i could go was 1 hour 15 min hence the 3 videos.. also Since I am the founder of a world wide woodworking organization called the United Federation of Woodworkers, my members and followers as well as new or beginning woodworkers around the world look to me for information to assist them in building project of their own. My long videos are full of tips, information and techniques that assist these woodworkers and allow them to become better woodworkers through learning and knowledge. I Would be cheating them and the woodworking community by hacking my videos down to useless content to just to make my videos shorter….. But yes, I do make short videos mostly.. you can find them on http://www.youtube.com/user/flatiger4u

Good job on a great project, Laney. I’ve been needing a collapsable outfeed table for a long time, and now I’m informed enough to get it done. That one goes on my list.

Ron, also as I noted, the original article with plan diagram and cut list is available on each of the videos description on YouTube.. You will find a link where you can view the article and plan.

My suggestion was not to deprive people of your longer videos, but to make shorter ones in addition to the longer ones. There are a few people who post videos on here that condense a lot of work down to about ten minutes and they are still excellent and informative. I wouldn’t call what they do hacking up their videos into useless videos. Granted it’s an art. I didn’t mean to touch on a sensitive nerve—-just making an honest suggestion.

Brandon, you didn’t touch on a sensitive nerve at all.. I do make shorter videos on smaller projects. What My point was when I said hacking down to useless content was I had 6 hours of video footage on this build, if i were to try to get it down to 15 minutes, It would have lost so much context that it would have been worthless to post.. Let’s take Woodworking for Mere Mortals for an example.. Steve Ramsey is a great friend and has a very awesome way of getting the point of a project across in a short video.. for that he is a master, because I haven’t learned how to take my big projects and narrate them to a short video, if i did it would be a highlight rather then an instructional…. Nevertheless, don’t feel that you touched a nerve or anything, I’m just passionate about teaching (or trying to teach) people this craft… so when I reply, I’m not replying in an upset tone or anything, just trying to give the best reason why I do what I do, the way I do it…. ;O)

Can you still run your DC hose when it is in the down position?

Yes I can run my DC when the table is down, also my dust port moves with the blade as it is tilted, this operation is not effected either.. That is the reason for my making the mounting plate 6 inches rather then following the plan dimensions.
