Once Rockler published a project of a table saw outfeed table, which in my opinion is unjustifiable complex and expensive.
There are many copies of this project albeit sometimes without a reference to the original :-)
In fact a good outfeed table can be made with much less effort and materials. A piece of 3/4” plywood, two 2×4
offcuts, one piece of 2×6,a few hinges and two lid supports is all you need to make an outfeed table. I also used 1.5” wide hardwood plank for edge banding.
You should have no problem figuring out the construction. The legs are attached to the table top with the same hinges as on the table top, plus I added two lid supports so the legs do not collapse. When not needed the legs fold up and the table top drops down. I also finished the top with thick layer of polyurethane.
Because there are two legs that stand on the floor instead of dowetail support as in Rockler’s version the saw+ table construction is much more stable. There is no danger that it flips back when you put too much weight on the table.
Please ignore the dust collection pipes for now, it is work in progress.
