Table Saw Out feed Table10/7
I'm getting a new table saw for the shop and want to build a new out feed table for it. I'm looking for a simple and strong design that will have 3 drawers. Any thoughts?
My thought would be to make the proper width base cabinet with 3 drawers.
The top would be Melamine or laminate. How and out of what would you construct the base so there would be no sag after some time?
I would build the cabinet or cabinets separate from the top so they can slide in under the outfeed table.
Build an out feed table with 3 drawers, sounds fairly straight forward to me.
I used 1 1/8" particle board laminated gray with a stout hardwood frame underneath, 4x4 legs with levelers and the top is connected to the saws angle iron with a series of bolts and nuts to make it height adjustable
Mine is a top of old 6/4 Poplar, beat up and waxed like crazy, probably 28" x 60". It has two slots milled in it to accept sliding track things coming from the 10" Delta saw.
Two doors underneath with sealant storage, and misc things. The outside of the cabinet has several pegs for jig hanging, etc.
The whole thing is on wheels, two fixed, two steering, and slips onto a hardwood track on the back of the saw cabinet so it will not roll around until called for.
Thanks guys. I appreciate the thoughts. If i had wanted a cabinet, David, I like your
Like most people I hate melamine. It is really good for out feed tables and chop saw stands. You can wax it up and its slicker than dog ---- on the wet grass.
Sorry to change topic here, but what kind of wax are you using? I am always concerned about table top coatings causing finishing issues. Just paranoid I guess.
Blaster from big orange with great.
Top coat does well too
We've used Minwax paste wax or Butcher's wax for 50 something years. Tablesaw, planer, jointer, shaper, router tables. Never had a problem with finishes. We use wb & solvent.
We've always done it Karate Kid style. Wax on Wax off
