Years ago, I borrowed some inspiration from Norm and built a simple plywood work table and used it as my tablesaw outfeed table. That original table is long gone but I recently built another one. I did include some changes and that’s what this video is about. I think this design is a little better, but it was all based on the original concept. You can watch the original video here.

All you need to make a table like this is a couple sheets of plywood and some hardwood (or in my case MDF) for trim.

Nice to watch your videos as always. I had a question as I really want to build a great bench. Are the dimensions going to be the same, 87” long, 24” wide, 35” high. I have a small shop so I need to measure and tear out some cabinets is why I ask. I have not only wanted to get into the guild but drooled at some of these great work benches for a while.This might be the perfect chance. I’ll need to go out on the morning a ck it out out. Do you know how much Benchcrafted hardware kit is going to cost I looked on the web site but did not see it.
Thx in advance for the info.

Hey Ken. We are building the Split Top Roubo pretty much exactly as designed by Benchcrafted. So the dimensions are indeed the same. As for the pricing, they have a link to the Guild Build right on their home page on the bottom left. Here’s a quick link for you: http://benchcrafted.com/Guildbuild.html

Mark I was just trying to decide on an out feed table for my saw. And in watching your video the table you constructed made me think about mobility. What are your thoughts for putting wheels on the table you made? Would it be a safety hazard in regards to possibly moving (even with locking wheels and swivels) basically in regards to pushing stock threw and possible moving and skewing the table and creating a possible kick back?

Thanks Richard

Hi Richard. I do think wheels could present a safety hazard. So I would suggest including wheels that pop up out of the way so the table sits on its legs. If you haven’t seen it, there is an episode of the New Yankee Workshop where Norm does just that. He creates a little hinged wheel assembly where you can lift one end of the table and the wheels pop into position. Then you can roll the unit around. Once you have it where you need it, you pull up on the legs and the wheel unit collapses, allowing the legs to touch the ground. Honestly though, I can’t remember the details of the construction. I am sure someone here has built the table and can give a little advice in this area.

Nice video Marc , but I’m a little confused.
Is it an assembly table or an outfeed table ?
LOL…keep up the good work : )

Also , good advice regarding “what should my next tool be” ?

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
