I needed an out-feed table and an assembly table for the shop, so I built this one using fir 4×4 for legs, and fir 2×4’s for the framing. The top is a full 4×8 feet of witch I fastened ¾ inch mdf to the framing with a ½ inch mdf replaceable top floating on top for a 1 ¼ inch flat top. I built this to sit 1/8th inch lower than the table saw top. It sits on 6 locking casters (Harbor Freight), and when they are locked, it is very stable. All framing was done with rabbits and dados. I added 4 20 amp duplex outlets, one on every corner. Can’t have enough power in the shop for portable tools.

Outfeed tables are great, nice job. I agree that you can never have enough outlets in the shop.

Now that’s a nice addition. Will you be moving the table around? If so, how will you disconnect your outlets? If not, why put it on casters?

I gave up some room to build a 4’ x 8’ table like yours and I’ve never regreted it. So nice to have plenty of room to work on. I have a similar bottom storage space like yours, plus 3 4” high boxes on casters underneath it for stuff I seldom use. I’ve got ply as the top layer and it’s great for drawing on, scrweing down 90% angles from scrap wood for assembly, doing math, doodling, writing phones number. etc.

cory, I move the table quite a bit. My shop is narrow and I push it up to the wall most of the time. I have a 20 amp dedicated outlet installed under the table saw table. I then used a 12 guage cord to go between the table and outlet.

Just how big is your shop? I’d put one of these in mine and I’d be out of room.

My shop is a 66 ft long office trailer. The shop is 12×41ft, then I have a 12×12 office/wood storage room at one end and a 12×12 finishing room at the other. It has been working out well, It came with central heat and air conditioning. Low dollar per square foot. But It cost me 750 bucks to have it moved.

Nicely done. I have found more work over the past 3 days for my table, so glad I built one. Not quite as big, but whatever the size oh so useful.
