I made this outfeed table to be as light as possible because it will need to be removed and stored after each use. I use torsion box construction using 1/8” tempered hardboard. I was going to use high pressure laminate for the bottom skin and use an 1/8” hardboard covered with laminate for the top skin. However the cost of a sheet of laminate would have tripled the cost of the table. So I am just using 1/8” hardboard for both the top and bottom skins. The edging around the outside of the table is fir, cut from 2×4 studs. Legs are also fir.
I used 2” angle to mount the table to the saw. Four 1/4” bolts fasten it to the saw. The legs fold up for easy storage. The table measures 48” x 48” x 2”. This size will enable me to cut a 4×8 foot piece of plywood.
