This is my first post to Lumberjocks and I’m pretty new to the world of woodworking. Up to now I’ve been working most with handtools but I’m venturing into the large powertool arena and am in the process of designing and building a basement shop.
My shop is long and narrow (28’ 8” x 10’ 8”) so my current plan is to place the table saw with the righthand side against the wall thus eliminating the possibility of putting a router table in the wing. However, my thought is to build a router table into an outfeed table (on the side opposite of where it butts up against the table saw) but I haven’t found any examples of anyone actually doing this so I’m wondering if there is some reason I’m not considering why this would be a bad idea. Obviously I wouldn’t have the advantage of being able to use the TS fence as with a wing based router table but seems like a couple of T tracks in the outfeed table with a removeable fence would give me the versatility I need and not take up any additional floorspace over the TS with outfeed table.
Thanks for any help.
