I didn’t make it to knock down, I want to put some drawers and maybe a pegboard on the bottom so I can make room on my walls that tools are taking up now. So Then it will be a center station for projects. hmmmm, and then I will have room for that bandsaw and drill press i want.

You will definitely be proud of that. For me, challenge #1 would be finding room for it in my shop; challenge #2-keeping it clear.

This is a nice outfeed table that will improve the functionality of your saw. It will also double as a work/assembly bench. Nice job.

I know what you mean about “maybe even build something”. I’ve been “working on my shop” for years now, and it’s still not done. I’ve built a few little things, but always it’s the shop not done, and there’s always something else that takes priority. This summer, I’ve promised myself.

Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Nice table you will enjoy having the extra work space.

I had that same saw for about 6 years and was continually frustrated by the miter slots, they are undersize and have tabs that stick out to hold the miter gauge in place. I struggled every time I wanted to make a jig because of the tabs. One day I got fed up and took my angle grinder and knocked them off (I clamped a piece of angle iron to the top along the miter slot and ground the tabs flush to it then smoothed them up with sandpaper) then I could make hardwood runners that would move in the slots. I wish I had done it the day I bought the saw, it would have saved me several years of frustration. I have since sold that saw and all of my jigs went with it as none of them would fit my new one.
