This is my first project with this table saw, man I love having room to rip a piece of plywood and man do I need an outfeed table.
Really a simple plywood frame topped with 3/4” plywood. I pre framed for a router table even tough I havent fully decided if I want the router table here or in the outfeed table. I topper the table with showerboard, basically hard board with white coating. So far I really like the ability to write on it with a dry erase marker for cut list, notes, etc.
I trimmed out with reclaimed oak and finished it with minwax walnut poly. I made some legs out of some South American Pallet wood, not overly happy with them but I did get the chance to practice tapering. Got to make a better jig for that. I think I’ll work on making some better ones out of oak. Total cost of the project was $9.00 plus gas, but the wife went to JC penny so I figure I can split the gas with her clothes shopping.
Note to self: after looking at the pictures I really need to install some more lights, it’s obvious that one 75 watt bulb is not going to be sufficient.
Thanks for looking
