Like most of you, my shop consists of sharing my workspace with the wife’s car. In other words, I get to work in the garage when the wife’s car is not there. As a result, all of my work tools are on wheels so they can be put up at the end of each work session. This made it difficult to have a convenient and easy to use table saw extension on my table saw that is on casters. Most of the work I do are smaller projects and seldom involves and sheet goods. I wanted to make the extension table to fit my needs and usage. The pictures show my results for an extension table that is easy to deploy and big enough for most of the work I do. The only modification to the saw was the drilling of two small holes to add a piece of angle iron to support the sliding leg support. When using a table saw sled, which I do often, I just leave the extension in the down position and it does not interfere with the sled. Thanks for looking

Nice work, I like the smaller size of it.
