Thanks everyone for your helpful suggestions. I want a outfeed table that will also house a router table and serve as my assembly table—it’ll be doing triple duty! So I wanted something big—Steve Peterson’s suggestion of 7’ x 6’ final size sounded just about right. But since I have a Ridgid R4512, and not a true cabinet saw, I’m going to build the table around only the cast iron portion of the table saw.

I began to look at where I was going to put the table, and started with teejk’s suggestion of putting it right in the middle. Eventually, I plan to have a sliding compound miter saw station along one of the longest “walls” of my garage (one isn’t a wall at all, but it has two steel columns that pretty much wall off that half of the garage). The two saw tables were pretty close to butting up to each other, when I thought “why not?”.

I’m really pleased with the result, and I think it’s going to be about perfect for me. You can see the layout I’ve come up with below. Thanks again for all your help!
