I am in the beginning process of designing an outfeed table for my shop. I currently have a 72”x27” simple thrown together work bench pushed up to my table saw now. My plan is remove the wheels on it, build a super beefy top, and move it away from the table saw to be used for hand tools primarily. So this leaves me with wonderful fun dilemma of building something to work as an actual outfeed table. Of course as my bride states on a regular basis “I cant do anything simple”.... So in that theme… I want to make it “A Jack Of All Trades”
I am in a small 20’ by 20’ garage shop so utilizing space is very imperitive. Also add the fact I hate clutter I plan on adding a bunch of bell and whistles on this hopeful jewel. Well, before I got to far into the design I figured I would ask my Lumber Jock friends what things would you like to see in a “Swiss Army Knife” version of an outfeed table? I know this is going to be a big and slightly costly build so I would hate to have an idea after the fact sort of thing.
Here are a few things I have in mind I want to incorporate….
1) Built in router table
For now that is all I can think of at the moment….. That’s why I am hitting yall up. What other “Neat” little features would you want in something like this? I know I am missing some stuff that later I would kick myself for not thinking of….
Thanks for any input and let the brainstorming begin…..lol
