Completed the out feed table for my old Craftsman Contractor saw, finally.
It is made from 1” Birch Plywood. The piece of Plywood was given to me and I was either going to replace the top of my Radial Arm saw or make the out feed table. I think I needed the out feed table the most. I used plans I found in a magazine, “Best Ever Workshop Solutions”. I didn’t follow their plan exactly but used their idea.
The third picture shows how I mounted the short piece to go out over the motor. The 4th picture shows what I’m using for the leg of the large part of the table.
My only thought on this, that I didn’t do, was to put a frame around the big table. I’m open to suggestions as to whether it’s needed or not. Also, right now the big part of the table is swinging free on a 3/4” piano hinge (last picture). Should I have some sort of brace from the table to the Saw legs?
The other thing I need from you guys/gals is what kind of finish should I put on the table?
Any suggestions or mods will be greatly appreciated.
