A quick & dirty outfeed table I made a few weeks ago.

I got the basic design from The Wood Whisperer Episode 30 – Somebody Feed Me ( I modified the dimensions to work with my saw and dust collection.

Even though it was a simple project, I took the time to draw it up in Sketchup. This allowed me to get the dimensions right and use Cutlist to optimize the amount of plywood I needed. I was able to get the whole table out of two 3/4” 4×8 sheets of birch plywood (with some decent sized scrap). It has 4 leveling feet so I can adjust it to the correct height. The top, bottom shelf, and long stretchers are only screwed in place (no glue) so it can be disassembled if I ever need to transport it. I still plan to plug the screw holes and put some type of finish on the top.

Very nice clean lines -
Are you going to put miter slots into it so it works with a crosscut sled or just move the table away from the saw when doing those kind of cuts.

Dave – I think I’ll eventually add miter slots to it, but so far I’ve had enough room.
