This is the outfeed table I built for my table saw. I had seen a similar design online and figured that it would work well for me.
The frame is 1×3 poplar face screwed(no fancy pocket hole joints here.
The top is 3/4” particle board covered with a light blue speckled laminate that I had left over from another project. The top edges were routed with a 22 1/2 degree bevel just to soften the edges and to make sure nothing would hang up on the edge of the laminate top.
I did have to drill a couple of holes in the tablesaw face lip to bolt the extension to the saw. I also drilled holes in the cabinet so I could bolt the angle bracket to the cabinet. One issue I had with the angle iron was it seemed too flexible so I added a piece of extruded aluminum angle…still too flexible. I finally added the poplar angle brace. Finally!...strong enough.
Another note is that in order to get the outfeed table to seat up tight to the face of the tablesaw I had to route a small chamfer in the botom side of the outfeed frame (see pic #5).
When the outfeed table is folded down, there is about 1/8” clearance between the floor and the frame (I didn’t plan this, I just lucked out), measure carefully!
I used a 4’ piano hinge for folding.
The legs have positive lock hinges and adjustable height feet for the uneven floor.
