Adjustable Height Outfeed Cabinet/Table

I tried a number of different types of wheels and could not find any that could swivel, lock, and variable height. I don’t plan on moving the table around very often, but I still want the option to do so. And, since the garage floor slopes, I would need to be able to compensate in the event I ever want to move the saw to another location. In any event, I tried to pick a couple of pictures that show the logic of the wheels. These have the 1/2” x 13×5” removable bolts (stems). The second to last picture shows the assembly of the parts left to right. I buried a square nut in a plywood sandwich and use nuts below and above to lock the wheel assembly in place while still allowing the wheel to rotate. The table top and drawer fronts are laminated from a piece left over from my assembly table project. The cabinet has five drawers and is 48” wide x 28” deep. I plan to do a bog on this project, but these shots pretty much sum it all up.

This is a really cool (much needed) idea. I really like how you combined a table, storage, and an outfeed tabe all into one. Nice work on the feet, but nice work on the whole project as well. Also…I really like your shop. Very neat & clean. Wish mine was like that.

Excellent design and build, Tim. I’m sure this one will be copied by many.

I’ve been planning an outfeed table/bench similar to this, but never considered putting it on adjustable casters… ...I really like what you did. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Tim, that is so cool.

I just have to give myself some time and build some shop furniture.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Good job,
Steve

Beautifully done !!!

When locked, do you get any “wiggle” or “shimmy” on those casters ? I’ve put casters on most of my machines, and—for the most part—found I have to live with at least some movement, when they’re locked down.

Thanks all. NBeener, no there’s actually not that much movement. I have to lean on it to get it to sway. I was surprised it is that stable because all the weight is sitting on four stems. It does weigh a lot and will weigh more when I load it up so that might have something to do with it.

In response to a few private emails, here are some more pictures. The SawStop overhead dust pipe is connected to the back of the table rather than the back rail of the saw. I had an idea to use this as a separate dust collector when I work on the tabletop. I figure I could plug it in to a router or circular saw.

It really does move.

The drawers are very deep, but accessible with full extension glides.

And here’s the money shot.
