I recently moved into my new place about 4 weeks ago, since then, I’ve made some new stuff to create a good work flow. You can see below that I started with a new outfeed table by taking off the router extension on the right of the saw table, and building one unit that wraps around the saw. I needed to remove the router extension because I had to set the saw against the wall (almost) to get clearance on the left side, since this is a downsized shop from before. After building this table I mounted the router table against the wall and soon found out (on my first job in here) that I didn’t have enough room on either side to rout long pieces. So, I built it into the outfeen table and then fabbed up a new fence. Hope you like!
