This Extension Wing was made out of a piece of oak butcher block.
The Wing has three runners also made out of the same butcher block.
Two of the runner guides attached to the existing out-feed table and the third slides in the fence guide.
The wing is about 9” wide. It doesn’t extend the full length of the current out-feed table because it wasn’t long enough. I could have cut another piece to attach to the end to make it as long as the out-feed table but I didn’t feel it was necessary, because it still extends a little more than 4’ beyond the perpendicular front edge of the blade.
When it is closed, it extends the table to 30” left of the blade.
When it is opened, it extends the table to 68” left of the blade.
When it is fully extended it does have a little flex or drop (about 3/16”) and that is acceptable to me. (Yeah, I could have built it with a leg so there wasn’t any flex (drop) but the point was to not have a leg to deal with.
One bonus is that it still works very well even when the out-feed table is folded.
