T.S. outfeed table

This table measures 3’6×5’1. I used 3 sheets of 3/4 baltic ply, some scrap walnut for the edges, a sheet of laminate and leg levellers. I also used some scrap walnut for the miter sled holder on the side. It is very heavy and solid.

The bottom shelf is higher than my dust port so if I ever get around to installing a dust collection system it will not be a problem. The extra storage is nice and i liked the idea of having a dedicated spot for my miter sled. I intend to make some kind of holder on the other side for my crosscut sled. I normally keep it on the saw but it would be nice to have a place to put it when i dont need it. Im also thinking about installing a power strip somewhere underneath the table because the table doubles as a work surface.

The downside to this project: I spent alot more time and alot more money than I had intended.

Overall, i think it will make my time in the shop more enjoyable and take some of the stress out of cutting sheet goods and longer pieces.

thanks for looking

This is a great O/F table. I really like the laminate top as should let long pieces slide easily.

Thanks for sharing.

I love the table saw station. The out feed table is one that is generous enough in both length and width.

You will see many successful projects from this setup as it will aid you with great support so you do not have to fight the material to keep it stable. This also makes for a safer operation.

Very nice OF table…Well done. From the looks of it you did a lot of planning before building your shop. I love the electrical outlets in the floor. Can’t tell you how many times I have tripped over cords and hoses in my shop so I am impressed with your layout and use of space.

Thanks for the comments,
Taoist—i spent 3 or 4 years fantasizing about building a shop. By the time i was able to actually do it, i had most of the details worked out.

I have to say, I aspire to a table saw like that, some day and it should be graced by an outfeed table of such quality.

Very sharp looking TS station/OF table, it will prove to be a big help in the larger sawing ops and also an extra work table surface is always a plus. I built my OF table with storage in mind as well and like You,have appreciated that feature very much ! Your shop looks like it has come together quite nice as well, great job on both counts.

Soon they’ll be selling plywood on wall street instead of gold. Nice table.
