This is my solution for an outfeed table. i tried a couple of methods for attaching it to the saw that didn’t turn out too well, I had trouble with vertical alignment. Then it occurred to me that the table is so heavy (note the doubled up 2×4 legs) that it doesn’t move anyway so I just backed it up to the saw, aligned the mitre slots and there she sits. I have mortise and tenon joints on the top horizontal pieces, the bottom is a combination of biscuits and pocket hole joints. The top is 3/4 MDF, edge banded with pine. There are adjustable levelers on each leg. The last picture shows a 4 foot square panel ripped in half; the table didn’t move at all. I’ve only had my saw about a month (this is the first thing I built with it), so the 4 footer is about as big as I’m going to try right now. I’ll probably add a shelf on top of the bottom horizontal pieces, but I think the project photographs better this way.

I have the G0690, I am curious how you worked around the steel bracket on the back of the saw. Does your outfeed table sit on top of he lower lip of that bracket?

Looks like you have lots of assembly tables to work from. The adjustable levelers are a great add on…......

Sheer genius. I was cleaning out the shop and rearranging stiff. An outfeed table came to mind as well as a side table for wide stock. Thanks.

opium89 – The table top extends beyond the table structure, it butts against the top rail and is above but not touching the bottom rail. Hope you are loving that saw as much as i do.

Thanks for the comments guys, I thought this thing a bit plain but am glad it was well received. Now i’m building an “around cart” (on wheels) with 3 big drawers to hold all the stuff needed around the saw.

Looks like she’s doin’ her job, and looking pretty nice in the process. What kind of finish did you use on it?

So far no finish on any part of it, that MDF is slick enough for now. Was thinking of putting clear poly on it, but the smart move would be to laminate it.

Nice outfeed table!
Added to faves. :)

I would personally laminate the surface. If it’s still flat after this long it’s probably a pretty good assembly table too.
