Made this outfeed table for my Ridgid TS3650 table saw. The overall dimensions are 39” x 48”. Since taking the pictures I have applied poly to the top and added swing away legs with leveling adjustments.

looks awesome!
Will your blade still tilt to 45* with it in place? (that’s going to be my major concern when I build mine)..

It will, but I forgot to mention I actually had to move the support directly to the left of the motor to allow it to tilt properly.

You have to take it easy with a Ridgid TS! The Mobile base on it is just barely strong enough to bear the saws weight. Too much more weight will break your wheels

Also where are your slots for your Miter gauge?

Thanks for the pointer Richard! I’ll keep it off the wheels most often, I rarely need to move the saw. I also forgot to mention that I added in the miter slots after this, but just on the portion prior to the piano hinge.

Wheels can be upgraded fairly easily. I got new ones for a TS base cabinet I am building now for $70 for 4. Each wheel holds 300 lbs for a total of 1200 lbs.

Any issues with it leaning toward the back from the weight?

No issues with leaning toward the back, I generally have the table swung up since I have the room for it. The only time I would swing it down would be to move it temporarily, and even then it didn’t seem to cause any leaning issues. I used a veneered plywood instead of laminated MDF due to this concern.
