I recently completed this outfeed and assembly table for my shop. the base is 3/4” birch plywood and MDF with pocketholes and glue construction. It’s built on a torsion box frame and has casters (The casters engage when the leveling feet are lowered). The top is 3 layers of 3/4” MDF banded in maple and then laminated. The bridge between the table and the table saw is floating, so I can move it out of the way if necessary. When it’s in place I have a dead flat work surface that is about 60” x 75” including the table saw.

Having all the parts bins and necessary tools close at hand has been great. This table is big, heavy, and dead flat which is exactly what I was after. I blogged about the build, which you can read here:

Thanks for looking.

Very nice set up. The various drawers and storage nooks must be invaluable. I have plans for something like this, now if could just get through the rest of the “to do” list my wife keeps for me.

Great addition to any shop. I wish I had more space to make something similar.

Wow Cory, that is really nice.
I don’t have an assembly table and really would like one. Space limits though.

Thanks for all the comments guys. I’m lucky to have a decent sized shop. It’s pretty nice to be able to spread out a little or work on multiple projects at once.

As well as being a nice storage unit it’s a great practical workhorse for your shop. Congratulations.

That table is way too organized and there is too much storage!!
Really a neat table. I’ll have to make myself one like that.
Very nicely done.

Really nice job on this. Love the storage and I think shop furniture should look like it could be in the living room of the house! Just makes you feel better when spending shop time…IMO.
