I waited too long to do this, the stock table is too short to support full panels when you cut them length wise, so the panels tip over and sometimes get damaged.
My previous saw had a narrower table that worked well, but scraps and sawdust would still fall behind the saw and get everything messy. therefore i made a table that was as wide as the saw.
The table is a gray melamine panel with solid beech edge, bolted to the saw and supported by simple legs at the end. I also made a scrap bin underneath with a hole in the table, so that scraps fall in the bin. The bin is a white melamine box completely edged with beech to make it resistant.
It contains a “big bag” that i can lift out with my forklift when full and transfer to a trailer.
Previously i had an osb bin but it wasn’t solid enough and didn’t contain a bag, so getting it empty and transferring the wood would take hours.
