I built this table mostly as an outfeed table for my table saw.

But as the build progressed I added a few feature:
1. torsion box assembly for the top
2. MFT style top with 20mm holes (I used the PARF system sold by LeeValey and reviewed here http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/10450)
3. 80/20 aluminum rails on the side that will support a gantry style router in order to flatten wide slabs
4. storage for my hand tools and power
5. storage for router bits in the extension wing of the table saw
6. permanent dust collection system with 2 gates for TS and router table
7. storage for my most used TS jigs (crosscut sled,...) and router table fence

I used 6 leveling feet and the top is remarkably flat and stable. I now need to build the router sled for these rails

Thanks for watching

This is a great out feed table and is a wonderful addition to your shop.

I really like the idea of the rails for the flattening router set-up. I truly appreciate its usefulness because my jointer is only a 6” model and my lunchbox planer only handles 12 or 13”. Do you happen to have a photo or two, or plans, for the gantry-style router?

Thanks for the kind words, Jeff, the gantry is currently only in my head ;)
I will update this post as soon as I build it !

yeah thats a great multi purpose out feed table,looks like youve thought of everything.the only thing i dont like about using the outfeed for a work table is if your in the middle of working on something and need to make a cut you have to clear the top,but if you dont have the room you make it work right.did you consider adding a small compressor,although it looks to be pretty packed.nice job.

Hi Pottz, I have actually recently installed a large compressor and rapidair system distribution so I now have compressed air at every station of the shop

And I agree that I have clearing the out feed table when I need to make one cut but it is very large (7’ long) so I can – most of the times – simply push the project around and rip/crosscut

Use this same idea with the MFT top as a outfeed table about a year back. Absolutely love it as a multi functional assemble and outfeed table. Highly recommend to anyone with limited space. As well the beneath extra storage area is a added plus.
