So I finally got a table saw in my shop. I don’t know how I have gone without one for so long. It’s a Craftsman Professional Hybrid and I love it. Immediately after getting it into the shop I started working on a crosscut sled and an outfeed table for it. Both are courtesy of Marc Spagnolo, the Wood Whisperer.
The outfeed is the same basic design as the first one he built with the exception of the top. I added an additional sheet of 3/4” ply to give some added weight and stability. I built the crosscut sled straight from his video as well. It has maple fences on 1/2” ply. The runners are made from some walnut scrap I had on hand. I’m really pleased with both of them. I’ve seen enough of these on LJ to know they are both must haves for a table saw set up and now I know why! I can’t even fathom how much setup time I’ll save on table saw cuts compared to my shopsmith that used to use. Now I can leave it set up as a lathe/jointer.
Both of these were wonderful projects to build. Not only are they a much needed addition to the shop, my dad came into town to help out which was a lot of fun!
