I used to just stack a bunch of stuff up on my assemble table till i got to my TS height or slightly under, but with the finish of a year long remodel and renovation of my house, I acquired a crap load of new tools and with the work being down all of those new tools , and supplies and everything that didnt belong in the house just got dumped out the door into my shop, my small shop got even smaller, at least till i make time to organize.I had some odds and ends coming up which required alot of ply to be ripped down,I decided to go ahead and start the long overdue project of a dedicated outfeed, didnt need anything giant but wanted to be able to add to it later so it had to be sturdy, and this is what i ended up with, its about 15 or so inches from the TS back rail to the outside edge of the extension, its as wide as the table top and two side extensions, its 2 1/4 inches think lowes birch that i had stacked up, wrapped with red oak, I made alot of peices of scrape work for me, its supported by angle iron lag bolted to the bottom of table with angle bolted to the body of saw. I had the back rail from a Bes fence system so i took off my back fence rail and bolted it to the table then replace my tables back rail, and that additional angle is what supports the close side of the extension to the saw and allows my fence to still move un upstrucked. Sorry for being so long winded, thanks for looking and as always comments and critique are always welcome as this is an ever learning journey im on.

Looks like that will work, and now you don’t have to reach past the spinning blade to retrieve the wood before it falls o the floor.

Are you going to put a finish on the top?
