This was inspired by a Marc Spagnuolo video (Episode 30). Thanks Marc!

I recently bought a Delta 36-725 table saw and needed a new out-feed table. My old out-feed table was made from a half sheet of 1” Birch plywood. Not wanting to waste anything, I disassembled the old table That used the Rockler OUTFEED TABLE HARDWARE ONLY Item #: 64056. It appears they no longer sell that item. If anyone would like that system I’d be happy to part with the hardware cheap.

I reused the top and put it on the frame as shown in the 1st picture. The frame is made from pine 1 X 4’s and 3/4” Birch plywood scraps. the casters also came from Rockler.

The caster mounting is two pieces of 3/4” birch Plywood laminated together the drilled to accommodate the caster mounting nut and bolt. then glued and screwed to the inside of the bottom of the leg. Pictures 3, 4, and 5 show this detail.

Not shown, but in the works is a shelf across the bottom stretchers. I have put in an old piece of oak, that is approx. 1 1/2” square, at the mid point that is mounted between the long stretchers. I have a piece of 3/4” MDF that I will cut to fit, in two pieces and either nail or screw to the stretchers.

Thanks for Looking.

Nice, I like it. I like that you used pine 1×4’s, too.

In my old age, I like low cost, lighter weight stuff with mobility.

When I get to make one, I will copy yours.

Thanks for the inspiration.

That is a nice outfeed table. They are so helpful for long stuff. I like the idea of the wheels with brakes too. More versatile!!

First I would like to thank you for your service.
Then I really like your outfeed table and may use some of your ideas. It looks like you could also use it for an assembly table.

Big Jim, That’s what I had in mind, not only outfeed but also assembly.

I see an outfeed table, assembly table and general workstation.

I have to multi-purpose things here due to space limitations.

This is a great build. I like the leg with the grommet that holds the wheel. Super idea.
Thanks.
