Just finished building an outfeed /assembly table in my woodshop. Due to limited space I decided to build a table that can serve both needs. In an ideal situation I’d have two tables so that I could use the table saw even when assembling a project.
The table has a top built from 2 layers of 3/4” birch plywood. I covered the top with black laminate (Formica) to match the side wing on my Delta Unisaw.
The base of the table is built with scraps of 3/4” birch plywood. I used heavy-duty leg levelers from Rockler at all six legs. This allowed me to level the table so that it’s 1/16” lower than the table saw.
I routed channels in the top of the work surface for two reasons. For one I needed to extend the slots for the table saw Miter gauge and accessories that use the T-Slots on the saw. Secondly, I wanted to install some T-Track on the table to use for hold downs, jigs and assembly help.
Total project cost approximately $300 and took about 8 hours to build.
