This outfeed table is made out of plywood torsion box topped with hardboard and edged with maple. Threaded rod stiffeners keep the front legs solid.

The table can be lifted, and the slats fall down, which props it up on wheels, and the saw can be slid underneath. The idea came idea from an episode of New Yankee Workshop I saw a long time ago.

There are shelves on each side. (See the glue bottle in the last pic.)

It’s crazy how much space this has freed up in my small shop. I wish I had done this sooner. Thanks for looking.

A great idea and looks like it will last a long time.

Very nice – I like how you’ve created a set of “nesting” tables with the table saw. I really like the fact that it appears that you have the same saw as myself. A great idea for a shop that lacks space.

Great idea. I like the way the saw fits underneath. I am working on out feed table myself. The table will provide storage for my scraps that are too good to toss or burn.

Great design. Always looking for ways to pack more stuff into my small space.
