Being new to woodworking has made shop projects the most stress free, enjoyable things to make. I get to use new tools with no concerns about making something look bad, and I still get to use most of what I screw up and just try to learn from it.
One of my biggest stresses in trying to get comfortable around the table saw was the fact that I didn’t have an outfeed table. I am not as good as so many others out there who are able to keep their work piece under control as most of it moves off the table through a cut. My cut pieces would fall off the back of the saw and I didn’t like the feeling at all.
This outfeed table was a combination of ideas from many youtubers and/or LJs. I made the legs with 2×6’s and 2×4’s connected with glue and screws. The top is a sheet of 3/4 inch MDF and 1/2 inch MDF. I decided against a piece of masonite on top bc I wanted the rounded over edges/corners. I just used drywall screws to connect the sheets of MDF so I can add a different sheet of 1/2 MDF when I need it. There is a 3-4 inch overhang on each edge for clamping. I love this thing .. its made use the table saw and clamping workpieces down so much better.
Please share any ideas or criticism … Thanks!
