Some one was asking about an outfeed table for their table saw in the forums the other day. I just happened to be building one at the time. Roughly 24 by 40 inches, the table is two thicknesses of particle board totaling 1 1/4 inches thick. I had some old pine that I used to edge band the table with. It isn’t pretty but it was free. I had a bunch of left over laminate from cabinet jobs so I topped the table with it. The drop down shelf brackets are from WoodCraft. I had a piece of maple left over from some drawers and a piece of ash was lying there. I went to the store and bought some bolts. I routed the grooves with a dado jig and a Makita plunge router. I really lucked out; it went together dead level the first try!!! Talk about a happy accident!! I spent the whole time I was working on it figureing out how I was going to get it level and it just fell into place. The big dowell is to lift the other bracket hinge when I let it down. All told it took about 4 hours. Now plywood slides over onto my bench with ease and my cut off boxes don’t get caught on the rollers I used to use. I can let the table down and work all the way around my big bench.
