I have needed a out feed for my table saw for some time now. I also needed a assembly table but I am limited to the amount of space that I have in my shop. I also move around a lot so I had to build it to be able to be taken apart for ease of move. I spent some time looking for a bench that would meet my needs. I found one close to what I wanted. This bench is inspired bench made by Jay Bates from jays custom creations on YouTube with some modifications.

I built it out of inexpensive plywood since it was a shop project. I did not use any wood glue at all since I needed it to be taken apart when I move. The table is made out of one and a half sheets of plywood and held together by 3/8×2 inch hex bolts and pocket holes to hold on the top and bottom shelf. The dimensions of the table are 47×47 inch and 34inchs high. In all I am very happy how it came out this is a much needed addition to the shop.

Tough when you have to move around and reset up a shop. Good work on considering that in your design. I would recommend one thing, give it a finish of some sort. Seal the wood up. This has several advantages, gives you practice finishing if so desired, makes it so when you clean up it wipes of easy, resists to some extent smudges and paint, lastly when working it does not look like the wood you are using. Maybe give it a light coat of some off color stain. Just a suggestion. Many years ago someone passed this to me and I have not regretted making my shop cabinets and such look like fine furniture as I have been told on more than a few occasions. LOL
