Detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to make a tablesaw outfeed table. Contains two large cabinet doors and wide drawer for maximum use of space for storage. The height of the table is adjustable with leveling feet hardware to accommodate your specific tablesaw height. The width is also easily customizable by measuring the width of your tablesaw and cutting the top to that size which makes these plans ideal for just about any situation. Plans contain an 18 page PDF with photos, illustrations and exact measurements.
- 3 - 4-1/4-Inch Drawer Pull
- Pair of 16" Drawer Slides
- 4 Leg Levelers
- 1 1/4" Drywall Screws
- 1/4" Dowels
- 2 - Frameless, inset hinges
- 2 Sheets of 3/4" Baltic Birch Plywood
- 1 Sheet of 1/4" Plywood (Drawer Bottom)
Step 1: Cut All Pieces to Width and Length
I'm using two sheets of 3/4" baltic birch plywood. I begin by cutting all my pieces to width and length.
Step 2: Create Legs
The legs use a simple "L" construction with some glue and screws.
Step 3: End Assemblies
Then a board attached between a pair creates the end assemblies.
Step 4: Add Stretchers
Here I have my table upside down and I'll add two stretchers to the top and two towards the bottom.
Step 5: Face Frame
On the front I'll cut-to-fit and glue a face to add to the top and bottom stretchers. This will flush up the face frame and add a bit of strength to prevent racking.
Step 6: Drawer Assembly
Next up I'll cut a shoulder and add grooves for the drawer assembly.
Step 7: Reinforce Drawer
I'll use dowels to reinforce the corners.
Step 8: Installing Drawer Slides
On the insides I'll use some scrap pine to add a place to attach the drawer slides. Now I'll screw in the full extension drawer slides and add the front face of the drawer.
Step 9: Door Dividers
Here I'm installing dividers to add some separation to the doors and drawer.
Step 10: Installing Frameless Inset Hinges
For the type of hinges I'm using I need to build out the sides. You may not need this if you purchase hinges that wrap around. I'll use some shims to ensure an even gap all the way around and screw in the hinges from the back.
Step 11: Cleats to Hold Top
I'll add some cleats to allow for a place to fasten down the top with some screws.
Step 12: Adjustable Leveling Feet
This outfeed table is fully customize by cutting the top to the width of your tablesaw and the adjustable feet allow you to set the height that works best for you.
Step 13: Route Miter Slot Grooves
I'm routing grooves in the top to allow room for tablesaw accessories like a crosscut sled.
Step 14: Finishing
And all that's left is to add a couple coats of shellac to add some protection.
