Finally finished mt table saw extension table. It is based on the design in Woodworkers Journal. 2 layers of baltic birch wrapped with red oak. Also made a hardboard cover for the tablesaw/router table so I can use it as a workbench without getting glue or finish on the tablesaw.

Thanks for looking.

Nice table extension. How did you attach the hinge support to the saw so that clears the rear fence rail? I see an angle iron bracket in the picture.

I’m also interested in knowing this…. can you show some close up pics

I bolted a piece of 2” angle iron to the rear of the saw in between the the saw and the fence rail. To that I attached a piece of 5/4 maple with a piece of 8/4 maple glued to it. I’ll take some pics of it and post them.

Here are a few pictures.

These pictures were taken with the extension held straight up.

The sliding dovetail lift is clever.
The thing which surprises me is how close to the saw it folds down.
I have a very similar model and I think the motor protrudes farther.

Nice setup. I attached my shorter (narrow?) extension in similar way and use a little workbench/table for longer outfeed off the saw. I went years and years without good outfeed support. It makes a world of difference!

This extension is the best thing I have done to this saw. The blade is set all the way to the rear of the table. It got dicey every time I cut something on it that had any length at all to it.
