With my shop being small, I needed a table I could use for assembly and as an outfeed table. It’s actually a modified version of the fold flat table from Wood Magazine. Since I didn’t need it to roll, I eliminated the center base and wheels. The legs are bolted on but do not fold. I also wanted a way to attach it to table saw but did not want to drill any holes in my new saw. So in the last 2 pics you can see I have the ability to clamp it to the rear angle on the saw with toggle clamps. It works quite well and is very solid with or without it clamped to the saw. The clamps just give it the extra stability and assure that it is level with the saw. (actually about 1/64 lower then the saw table). Instead of using construction lumber for the frame, I ripped and laminated 3/4 in birch plywood and screwed it all together with pocket hole screws. The top is MDF with an oak border and coated with 4 coats of clear poly.

Almost didn’t look at this, but now I’m glad I did. Love the clamp to hold the table to the saw. Will have to remember this.

Ingenious way to mount to the saw, I like it. I couldn’t figure out how to get good horizontal alignment so I just made my table super heavy. Might have to add your system to my table.

I am just in the process of finishing my out feed table and it looks a lot like yours. I made it so it can be moved easily as I wanted it to be movable when needed so I made mine so it can be move with a pallet jack (I use the jack for a lot of the things in my shop) but your idea of the clamp to the saw is a great idea I am going to have to incorporate it into my design. Perfect timing and nice job Walnutz
