Whenever I go to the local home improvement center, I always check the scraps ben. All of the dimensional lumber for this project was bought for $.50 a stick. My wife doesn’t really get the concept of not moving from side to side when catching lumber so I used to dread having to ask her. One day it dawned on me that I had enough lumber laying around to do something about it. At first, I was going to stop at just the table but I quickly realized that I had some prime real estate for storage. The peg board is the best part of the table. Also, you can’t really see it, but on the right end of the peg board (in the gap between the table and the saw) I made a lip to store the miter fence when not in use. The top is 3/4in maple plywood, edged in maple, and finished with 5 coats of shellac, The only materials I had to buy to complete the project were the lag screws and an assortment of pegs for the board.

Hi Vick, Nice job on your outfeed table. That’s some good use of space and available materials. I made myself one for my tablesaw about a week ago. Like you I didn’t spend $20 on it, used what I had. I didn’t get any storage space under mine, made it a fixed/folding setup.

Looks very useful. I know what you mean about the wife not holding things strait. I always setup roller stands but they are just not very good in certain situations.

Looks great. If only I could get out from under the Honey-Do list to make an outfeed table…

If I had that space in front of my saw, that’s just the kind of out feed table I’d make.
Very nice job.
