This thing isn’t going to win any beauty contests, but it sure does work like a charm.
I’ve been wanting an outfeed table, but the tiny size of my shop made a folding version the only option. I think the photos are pretty much self-explanatory as to how it was constructed. I’ll be glad to answer any questions for anyone who might be interested in making their own version.
The last photo is a quick-and-dirty strip cutting jig I threw together today after seeing one on TV. The plywood base has a strip to fit in the saw’s miter slot, and the walnut piece is clamped down as close to the blade as you want the thickness of the strips to be. You then set the fence so that the workpiece just touches the tip of the jig, and you can cut identical strips to the left of the blade by repeatedly moving the fence over until the tip makes contact.
