So, since spring is here I have decided to not park in the garage at all this summer and to turn my half of the garage into a permanent shop. So this weekend I went out and bought some 3/4 Baltic Birch and created a 48×42 outfeed/assembly table—adapted from Marc S (the wood whisperer). Since I have to be able to downsize come winter, I wanted a dual purpose piece, so I decided to not cut slots in it but used the leveler feet to bring it dead even with the slots in my table saw. A super big bonus to me was the additional storage space I gain under it for my planer, compressor, scroll saw, and who knows what else.
As an added bonus I had just enough ply left over to make a cross cut sled. I have just been using my Osborme miter for all those cross cuts but after popping a couple out with the new sled I think the Osborne will get a little lonely. The runners are black walnut, but I didn’t have anything nice in 8/4 so I just planed down a 2×4 and bevelled it for comfort.
Sorry the pics aren’t great—camera on my phone.
