I am not currently using an out-feed as my old one was damaged beyond use by having a cabinet I was working on fall on it. A new one however is on my ‘short’ list.

In my opinion an out-feed table needs to be just long enough to hold your longest cutoff without falling. For me that is generally 8’ stock if I am ripping. So if you add the distance from where the stock is fully clear of the blade + out-feed size that would need to be just over 4’.

As for width I am going with the width of my saw.

My out-feed design is on locking casters as well so it can be moved to the side if I am planning on working with long, narrow stock. My shop is just slightly smaller than yours at only 12’ wide, that is why I have most things on wheels or stationary against the walls.
