Outfeed Table

So after I got my very first tablesaw, I decided I needed to make an outfeed table. Since my space is very limited, it will also serve as a tool cabinet, assembly table, platform for my kids to sit on while they watch me work…..you get the idea. I kindof built this as I went along…no formal plans…just used scrap 2X4’s that were lying in my basement. The panels for the sides and doors are birch. This was my first ever attempt at making drawers… and I made the runners ( I am too cheap to buy slides). This was actually my first big thing I have ever made. It has already gotten a lot of use, and it serves a good purpose.

MDF top and bottom, with Hardboard layer on top.
I built the table to enclose the tablesaw motor for safety.

Enjoy!

Very nice. I can only imagine a larger table to assist with 4×8 panels. Looks like you have the room… Well done.

Looks very nice. Should get a lot of good use out of that.

Just keep the kids off when the saw is on (or even plugged in). Duh.

Don’t worry. Safety first in my shop. Table saw (acually every tool) is unplugged unless it is in use, and I always keep the blade below the table when not in use.

Nice outfeed table and work space. Looks like you used every inch of storage possible.

Is the outfeed table level with the table saw or a little higher? Looks like it’s higher on the second picture. You sometimes make it a bit lower, but never taller.

It’s actually about 1/8th of an inch lower than the table. It must have been the angle that the picture was taken that makes it appear taller.
