Out-Feed or Work Table

I recently bought a new SawStop saw and the table height was much lower than my old out-feed table on my old Craftsman Saw, so this gave me the opportunity to replace my 38 year old out-feed table shown in picture 2. I based my new table Picture 1, on the WoodSmith Weekend Workbench Plans but I made a few modifications since the primary use is a table not a workbench. I needed it to be lighter so I could move it around in the shop if I needed to. The third picture is my 28 year old workbench that is so heavy that it will never be moved but I still use it everyday.

Congrats on both, the new table saw and great table. Both should serve you well. Love the tags you put on the pic nice touch.

Very nice work table. I like the idea of the pull out step.

Great idea,

How did you get the height right with the casters?

Made 1/4 ” lower, then used Sims to get to 1/8” lower then screwed top to frame. Wanted to keep top between 1/16 to 1/8” lower than saw top.
