This is an outfeed and assembly table I put together a few years ago. It was basically made with leftovers and cutoffs from other projects, but has turned out to be an amazing addition to the shop and the most used piece of shop furniture I have.

The assembly was really straightforward and easy. I used 1/2” plywood for the legs (didn’t have enough 3/4” leftover, but the 1/2” has held up great), 1/2” mdf for the top and lower shelf, and the frames for the top and shelf were out of 3/4” oak plywood I had on hand. Other than that I just used some 2×4 cutoffs for nailing blocks on the feet and attached some hospital grade casters to them (got 14 of them for $7.32 in an auciton :) ). Butt joints and 1 1/4” screws with rosettes holds it all together.

I’ve had over 200lbs on this thing and it didn’t even skip a beat, so if you are worried about using 1/2” ply for the legs, don’t be! I made the height a 1/4” lower than my table saw which is perfect to pieces coming off the saw. Because I left the middle wide open, I can fit it right on the back of my contractor’s saw and the motor slides under the table.

Having a mobile outfeed table is awesome. Never have to worry about juggling my offcuts as they go through the saw and I can wheel the table out and use it for finishing, assembly, and really anything.

Nice. Great deal on the casters! Those things can be pricey. 14 for $7.32!? Super deal. The table looks great also.
