this out feed table came out pretty good.. i used baltic birch for the surface panel…. then i contact cemented down p-lam on that. All he support material is 4/4 soft maple except the 8/4 walnut rail that is on the back of the saw. A full length piano hinge runs underneath. And 7/8in. dowels are slid through holes to support the folding part of the extension… All in all the fixed part with the miter slot 12” in width by 48 in.in length same for the flip up. the fixed part of the table can easily hold 160lbs.+. tell me what you think.

-- to the endeavor

I can see your wasting no time with your new Hybrid saw. That a nice design for a out feed table…I recently saw a great ajustable sawhorse that is us for larger cross-cuts will have to forward it on to you to see what you think. Enjoy the new toy and be safe…Blkcherry

Very well done. Looks like it’ll improve your saw a lot.

Great extension Wouldi, the mobility of having it there or not would be handy.

I like the drop down end on the table. Great space saver but always avaliable for quick use. Ingenius

Great. Got a different Grizzly model, but I think I could make this work. Might have to rethink my makeshift outfeed table currently in use.

Very nicely done. I especially like the use of dowels to strengtghen/straighten the hinged section.

Maybe I could adapt this style to my Ridgid.

Man, it matches the walls and everything, like a designer shop. It makes my shop look really random. Which iit is…

Very cool idea, and just in time because I’m having to re-think my setup. The dowel solution is very creative.

Thanks for sharing this with us! Well done!

The drop down table is a very frugal way to save ahop space yet have a large outfeed table. I like dual purpose designs and am greatfull for you sharing.

Hi,

Very nice. I think I will try and do something similar for my 444. I’ve been thinking about this for a long time but never considered making a slip on to fit that angle iron.

-- Made lots of sawdust and pounded some nails. Haven't finished anything, though.

Nice folding table set-up…I hope you don’t mind if I copy your dowel rod solution for mine. That’s so simple and functional. I have just started designing my tablesaw cabinet (1950’s Craftsman) and I was curious about how to support the folding section. Thanks for the great idea!

Excellent design and construction! I really like the idea of the folding table … that would work well in my shop.
