Started this a few days ago, but haven’t had much opportunity to be in the shop to get it finished. I ran into an issue of my own making. I saw it coming, but thought “Ah maybe it won’t happen.” I used a piece of 3/4” AC for the bottom of the torsion box. It was a little warped but thought it would get pulled back when it was glued and screwed to the MDF that already had the center cells glued to it. Figured the 3/4” MDF with the grid was pretty rigi...
I’ve been using the assembly table in the shop for a little while now. I made the murphy bed and a couple other items and it came in handy. I like it.Please realize that my idea of an outfeed table as a combo assembly/outfeed table is a preference of mine and not necessarily of others. I downgraded from a woodworking bench with vices and such to this after I found that I needed outfeed and assembly capabilities more than a workbench. I use a combination of hand and power tools. I use po...
I got a Ridgid 3550 table saw a few years ago off Craig’s List.I like the saw, but I’ve wanted to do an outfeed table.Since the saw is on rollers I couldn’t go with anything too big.Also the saw is shoe-horned into it’s storage spot in the garage, so size was a consideration. And I wanted the fold-down to cover the motor to stop me from snagging on things rolling it in and out of the shop. I also wanted to use just materials I already had on hand (read scraps and cu...
... one of the tables will have 4 legs, but the other will have only 3. Fortunately, this was entirely intentional. And while it is the only result that one can expect, it still somehow took me by surprise! Just wanted to share my laugh with anyone else who might get a kick out of it too.
Table Saw Cabinet with router incert and lots of draws. #2: Whats an out-feed table without a Panel Sled?
As I mentioned in the last comment of part 1 I am not going to place the router into the cabinet with the table saw so I moved on to the out-feed table. Its a real simple set up 3/4” Birch ply with a 3” oak border and oak stiffeners ever 12” the legs are 3/4” plywood as well. I removed the angle iron on the out feed side of the saw that’s part of the Biesemeyer 54” fence and used the bolts to secure the out-feed table to the saw and 2” screws ...
So now I had the saw and the jointer set up. I went to a local lumberyard (Woodstock Lumber) and bought 14 16-foot 2×12s and 3 sheets of baltic birch plywood. The 2×12s I stickered and left in the middle of the garage. The plywood was for building three rolling carts, patterned after the ones in Fine Woodworking #190. My intent was to build one cart the exact same height as my saw and use it as an outfeed table. Then build another to hold the planer such that the outfeed for ...
I built this simple but very functional workbench /outfeed table / assembly table and figured I would show everyone how I constructed it. I was influenced by lot of people here on Luberjocks, thank you all! Note: I know I have the last 2 videos posted and I don’t want t spam, but it has been 24 hours so I figured it was ok.
A handful of people have asked me about building a similar outfeed table like mine and wondered how I supported the table/panel saw. Instead of trying to describe the mechanism, I thought I’d post a short video of my design (in action), that I used on my Outfeed Table and now on my Wall Mounted Panel Saw. Here's my Outfeed Table Here's my Wall Mounted Panel Saw To operate, I simply lift the table/panel to lock it into place and when I want to fold it down, I lift slightly on t...
One of the useful additions to a table saw is a Rear Outfeed Table. In my old shop I made a folding rear outfeed table for my General 350 cabinet saw that was something like 24” deep and 48” wide. Altho it worked well, it took up a lot of space (which I had available in that shop), but it made a great assembly table. However, in my new small, narrow, shop, I had to rethink a design suitable for the space I had available. I knew a folding design probably wouldn’t work bec...
Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Years ago, I borrowed some inspiration from Norm and built a simple plywood work table and used it as my tablesaw outfeed table. That original table is long gone but I recently built another one. I did include some changes and that’s what this video is about. I think this design is a little better, but it was all based on the original concept. You can watch the original video here. All you need to make a tab...
