I’ve been sick of using the 12” wide outfeed roller stand for over a year now. I’m finally making a fold down outfeed table that’ll only add about an inch to the saw cabinet when the table is folded down.
I had to take a different approach and make a frame attached to my cabinet and the cast iron wing.
After attaching the support arms I added a couple of angle iron pieces to the inside to prevent flex in the wings and then added the maple back and a poplar strip to the front.
The fixed table is made up of 4 pieces of 1/2” ply and I laminated the three top pieces. Creating 3 separate pieces for the top allowed me to easily create the miter channels. I still need to run a router through the back of the frame so my sled isn’t blocked.
The fixed portion of the table is rock solid and will easily support the fold down portion of the table. I have plans to make the fold down portion of the table a duel purpose table ~ an outfeed table and a sanding table.
