I work out of about 2/3 of a two car garage and space is at a premium all the time. I’ve been wanting a better outfeed solution for a while and I also wanted some more assembly space. So I decided to build an assembly/outfeed table along the lines of the Shop Notes assembly table (a good example was built by LJ’er toddbeaulieu ).
I made a number of changes to the basic plan and drew it up in sketchup; increasing the size to match the length of my TS with router wing, customized the shelf heights for specific tools I wanted to store and added some fold up tool stations. The tool stations provide specific places to mount the grinder and lathe on when needed and most importantly, it puts them at a more comfortable working height.
The top is two layers of 3/4 BB ply topped with laminate. The frame is primarily 2×4s and a few pieces of 4×4 my neighbor gave me. I used bed bolts as well to help tighten the frame up.
The top has a lot of dogholes for various clamping approaches and I routed a couple of slots for miter slot clearance for the table saw. I didn’t mount a vise and didn’t design the top for one. I plan to use something like the wonder pup for clamping if needed.
