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.

Update:...

I had to modify the wheel mounts. I relied on the wood glue to hold the wheel mounts. While rolling it out to use it, one of the wheels hit a small piece of scrap on the floor. Instead of rolling over it, it stopped. This resulted in the mount breaking free of the leg.

The solution was to remount (after breaking the glue joints) all of the wheel mounts using glue AND screws. Now I’ve got to remember to keep the floor swept up. LOL

Great Job! Had considered Marc Spagnuolo approach too, but decided to go with something a little less mobile and could double as storage cabinet. I’m sure you’ll get lots of use out of your’ s too. The brakes are a great touch.

hi frank. i just looked at your nice outfeed table again in a different light. in my small shop,storage is at premium- even on the wall. so when i see all that empty space under that table, i see it with a floor ,shelves and doors to keep every in there free of dust. i’m thinking that would be a great place to store blades, sand paper, tools or TS accessories. maybe some roll out drawers for easy access…..i love designing.
my 2 cents worth

cheers, jim

ps i just had right hand surgery and can’t hit the shift key for proper capitalization.

I agree with Jim on this…

There is a lot of wasted space… just begging to be used for storage!

@ Joe and Jim. I put the shelf in and now it is full of cut-offs and my gallon jug of titebond. Watched an Izzy Swan build the other day where he made little cubby shelves to put some of the Harbor Freight storage containers in. I may do something like that on the end or sides. Thanks for all the good comments. Bad comments are also welcome. If you see something that should or could be different, let me know. I’m a Submariner and my feelings don’t get hurt. And should my feelings get hurt I would keep it to myself. Sailors are a strange lot. When they find out something bothers you, they will keep pinging on it till you whip their ass or you get your’s whooped. LOL
