I got my outfeed table built, but it still needs legs. In the meantime, my roller stand is working OK as "legs." It's nothing special, but I wanted to post my table so maybe others searching for outfeed table ideas would have another reference to look at. I think I read every thread on the internet with "outfeed table" in the title when searching for ideas for mine. Total size of the table is 26.5" deep by 40" wide. I would've prefered it be closer to 35" deep, but that would've meant buying a full sheet of ply...too expensive ATM.
Funds are limited, so this table had to be cheap to construct. Materials list: 2'x4' sheet of 3/4" Luan ply, a 2x4, three, 5-inch gate hinges and two, 2-inch 5/16" bolts/lockwashers/washers, assorted screws. I think total cost was roughly under $40. The hinges cost more than the wood did. I still need to cut miter track slots as I forgot about that when putting it together. Pics or no table, so here we go!
Here's a couple of how it turned out.
A pic of before I added "the filler strip" to bridge the gap b/t the TS and the folding part of the table.
The hinges are (sloppily, but I tried) mortised in.
5/16" bolts attach the cut down 2x4 to the rear fence rail.
5-inch gate hinges (3 of them) attach the folding part to the 2x4
The filler strip has mortises (ugliest ever) cut in to allow it to sit flush over the hinges. The mortises aren't neat b/c they don't have to be. And b/c I have no skill.
And of course, my helper. He's 3 and showing keen interest in woodworking!
Miter slots. Not pretty, but they work. This was a PITA as I had to disassemble the whole thing and use a cheap HF clamping edge guide. But it's back together and it's Miller Time! :D
