Built this outfeed table for my table saw and thought it would be a nice place to add my planer with in-out feed support. It is low to the ground but should work better than lifting the planer and fastening to a table each time i want to use it, and hopefully reduce the occasional snipe. The top is pine from an old recycled dining table i found and provides a good flat surface. Thanks for looking.

Thats a great space saving idea. Let us know how it works out after using it for awhile.
Nice build.

Nice idea. Very functional. Whenever you can get more than one use out of a tool or support tool, that is a huge plus. I like the efficiency. Great job. I might have to consider something similar in my shop.

I have the same problem with lifting that darned heavy planer – and I have been meaning to get to the outfeed for my tablesaw. You sir, have hit the nail on the head!

Great Idea… never seems to be enough space in the shop, no matter how much room you have.

Nice. I am just getting into wood working and would like to do something like this for my first project. Mind if I build off your idea? :)
