I really should’ve built one over a year ago when I got my Delta contractor’s saw, but other projects took over. A piece of MDF on two sawhorses just wasn’t stable enough, or at the perfect height. At least I was able to reuse it as the bottom shelf.

This design is based on The Wood Whisperer’s outfeed table so thanks to Marc. The simple design let me put it together in half a day. I put a piece of hardboard on the top and waxed it. Instead of buying four leveling feet that costs $20+, I used four 3/8” bolts and T-nuts which cost only $5. I might end up staining it for fun and add slots for my cross cut sled.

Nice. I’ve been wrestling with outfeed table issues in my very small shop. I watched Marc’s video on this table and thought it would be the best (simplest) design for my needs. Thanks for showing the T nut leg adjust. I thought of that two, but wasn’t sure how to install… thanks for your photo of how you did yours. Also, I had planned a hardboard top.

I may need to add a vice and bench dogs to mine… I really need multipurpose work surface.

Good timing for me… thanks for posting.

Very nice… Now I have no excuse for not building one for my saw…. Ever thought about doing a Sketchup drawing for this? and maybe posting it?? (No selfish motivations there whatsoever. ;) )

I Love that table..its simple cheap easy to build and will do the job! I volunteer to do a Sketchup drawing of the table…got some basic dimensions for me? I assume its 3/4 ply? Is the hard board 3/4 or is there a ply substrate? Nice execution…Marc does it again!

Nice work Jayman! Great idea for the levelers. I saw Mark’s podcast last week and thought about building one after the holidays. I like the dual purpose concept that this table allows at an economical price.

I built one also for my Delta Contractor’s saw. I had to cut a small hole in the top to allow room for the motor when tilted. Do you have an issue with your motor hitting the table when tilted?

Thanks for the comments!

The dimensions is roughly 41”x24”x35.25” made out of about half a full sheet of 3/4” ply. The top is made out of 1/2” MDF with 1/8” hardboard glued on top, since I had them laying around the shop anyway.

Since 95% of my cuts are at 90 deg, I didn’t bother accounting for the motor tilted. I plan to pull the table back far enough to avoid the motor completely whenever I have to deal with that 5%.
