This project turned into a few firsts for me. First project of the new year, first time using a biscuit joiner, and first time I fixed a mistake using a chisel.
The outfeed table is made from a melamine top, framed with a 2×6 that was jointed/planed flat to 1’‘x1.5’’ and using the hardware kit from rockler. I might have been better off going with some oak or maple, but this worked well enough. The border has a rabbet that the melamine sits in with biscuits holding the frame to the melamine.
I ended up making the frame just a tad too small and had to chisel out a notch so the bracket could fit on the inside edge, in the end it worked out well so no harm done.
The table sits just below the miter slots, by accident I originally intended to cut out dado’s for the miter slots but once I saw it this way I really liked it so added legs and left well enough alone.
