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.
