I recently built this outfeed table for my Ridgid R4512 table saw. I was in need of one as a future project will have me cutting some full sheets of plywood. It is a frame made of 3/4” plywood with cross members that are dadoed to line up with the miter slots on the saw. I then topped it with hardboard. I wanted it to be as light and as strong as possible.

I made adjustable legs out of plywood. I drilled a hole and then squared it out for a square nut to be able to tighten the legs from the other side. The legs are attached to top via hinges.

To attach it to the table saw I cut a 2×4 down and cut a dado in them for the table to sit in when I need it. I attached those using the t-track in the bottom of the rear fence rail. The whole table can be lifted off and folded up and put away to make room.

I see you use a tricycle to move those heavy sheet goods around the shop … And yes, it is a nice outfeed table, and the torsion box should keep it dead flat.
