My outfeed table extension

Thought I’d share my outfeed extension I built. The table saw is built into the table, and the room itself is pretty small. I wanted to be able to cut a full 8ft sheet but needed something removable to get into my other work area where my router and downdraft is. Basically cut out even spaced notches on both sides of the little walkway and cut a piece of mdf to go in between. I also added some set screws to the far end to raise it up off the farthest counter a bit so I wouldn’t end up catching the edge.

Wow, that is pretty impressive. I like the keying feature so you can move it around if need be and have it stay in place. I should do something like this to go between my TS and workbench. Thanks!

I’m still learning…what is the grill in your bench for? Air filter or sanding station?

Thanks guys! The grill is the downdraft for sanding/grinding. In a perfect world where I would have more room available, I would have made the distance from the grill to edge a few inches deeper…

I just stumbled across this project. Great use of space for temporary operations.
Good job.
