I just finished my table saw extension for my new SawStop. I made it so it is not permanently mounted. I can switch it from a long outfeed extension to a short outfeed extension. The legs are held in by hitch pins (which I had lying around) so they don’t fall out while switching from long to short outfeed. The 2 cleats have 3/8” dowels glued in them and they fall through the holes in the back rail. The adjustable feet are from a piece of equipment we got at work and replaced with optional casters. (When I removed the feet I knew they would come in handy in my shop some day.) The top is 3/4” MDF, the legs are 2, 2×6s glued together and ripped to 2×2, the sockets for the legs are made from 3/4” plywood and the cleats are oak.
The items I make the most are picture frames. Most of the wood I use is rough cut from a local mill. After I plane the surfaces I joint the 1st edge on the table saw in a jig, which is the main reason why I made the extension table capable of switching from short to long.
Miter slots will be going in, in both directions, soon.
Making sawdust (and stuff out of wood) is like therapy for me.
