Shelly, be careful and do not be over ambitious.
Make your a out-feed table large enough for your need by not so large that it would use too much very precious room in your shop.
In addition you want to be able to reach to the center of the table and to not waste all this space between the desks as they now seat.
Under my out-feed table I have a large space to store very bulky items like my 2 table saw sleds.
Also make sure to install power outlets to connect power tools on 3 sides.
Do you want to integrate a router table with dust collection?
If yes, do want to make it or to buy it.
I made two and they never work very well so I ended up buying a Bench Dog an Amazon and I am delighted with it.

What about a down draft table?
The top of my table is made of a 3/4” plywood names “multipour”
which is an epoxy impregnated plywood, normally made for concrete forms.
It works very well in this application as it is very stale and it is very easy to clean.

I hope this helps.
