Based on the ever popular Woodworker’s Journal Article. Only thing left to do is touch up the BLO, route the miter slot extensions and apply the protective polyurethane. Not perfect by any means but I’m excited to have this finished. Folds flat when not in use.

I took the pics while the extension leg was resting on top of the shelf/brace instead of on the shelf itself. Oops. Scroll through the comments for more photos.

Enjoy because I know I will.

Gives me just over 57" of total depth photo 20141129_162759.jpg

Gives me just over 57” overall depth from front of saw to back of table.

Looks real nice. Do you use a cross cut sled?

Thanks. Yes I made my version of the Super Sled. I just haven’t cut the miter slot extensions. Can’t get back to the shop for a few more days to finish up.

Stellar job on the outfeed table….A table saw is just not complete w/o one…..They are a must for feeding stock, and stock falling off the end of the saw is unacceptable, besides damaging the wood…..Stellar…..

This is awesome great! I don’t recall seeing this in WWJ. Can you share the issue it’s in so we can study in more detail?

Woodworkers Journal Jan-Feb 2009

There are several versions on Lumberjocks. Just search for outfeed table and or fold down outfeed table.

Thanks for the compliments. I had to work today and will be out of commission tomorrow. Really want to get back in the shop to route the miters, apply finish and get started on a few cutting boards for Christmas.

This is one of the finest table extensions I’ve seen. Great job. How did you attach the front section to your saw?

The Mounting Plate is attached with 5/16” lag bolts and washers. I had to drill through the rear rail in order for this to work. Just had to ensure the lag bolts would not be directly inline with the miter slot extensions.

Here are a few more pics and a video. Click on the link to see just how easy this is to setup and take down.

Well done. I have been using a 4’X5’ rolling work bench as a out feed table. Need to give this a try.

Thanks for sharing,
