    Default Assembly/outfeed table

    Thought Iíd post some pictures of my outfeed/assembly table for my table saw that Iím building. Iím quite far along with the build but Iíll post pictures from the start of the build and continue with more tomorrow.

    Iíve never really had an outfeed table and it was driving me nuts with longer rips and the timber falling off after the cut. So I reconfigured my workshop so I could best make use of the table and started building it. Iím using my old assembly table as an outfeed table at the moment, and itís ridiculously handy already not having to catch the piece being cut. The old table will be repurposed for something else I have in mind.

    I plan to install my router insert so I can use my Incra LS router fence which will be easily installed/taken off with the use of an MFT style work top drilled used the parf guide system- more to come with that.

    The bench is made from 2 x sheets of 18mm birch ply (I love the stuff) and Iíll use valchromat for the top. Iíve got a few ideas for handy tools storage etc so looking forward to finishing this build to take advantage of it.

    The below photos is the leg laminations and mortice. Each leg consists of 4 x lams with one of the laminations having a cut out which forms a mortice. Super simple yet very strong. The first pic is just showing off the beautiful figure. Tony and Brett (NCarcher and FenceFurniture) dropped the sheets off to me and I was amazed at the quality for the price I paid.

    More to come....


    Cheers,
    Andy

    Default Assembly/outfeed table

    All 4 legs glued up. Still need to clean up the dried glue etc and give it a sand but happy with these. I chose the figured boards for the front legs, I know itís just a bench but why not?

    Front and rear stretcher all glued up. The picture below is how itís constructed- 3 x 18mm boards with the middle board cut out to form the tenon. Very easy. Just need to run a shoulder plane over them as theyíre a tight fit in the mortice.

    The inner boards is cut narrower to accommodate a panel which will have some form of chest of drawers/cupboard resting on it. Iíve already cut the frame for the top, itíll be 80ish mm high and some cross sections for rigidity. The valchromat still needs to be picked up but that will sit within the frame on a rebate, similar to how Iíve done the front/back stretchers.

    Iím rather chuffed at that grain though, itís very nicely figured. Iíll be finishing it with Osmo Polyx satin using the scortchbrite non abrasive pad.

    Cheers

    Nice one Andy.
    Where did you get the ply from?
    Didn't know you had an Incra fence on the table saw. Is it as good as they look?

    Hey mate,

    Trademaster in Granville is where I got it from. You can check on their site but from memory it was $125 for the BB/BB. I got another sheet that was B grade which was slightly more and you can barely tell the difference if any. Itís good quality stuff.

    As for the Incra fence, yes very happy with it. I particularly like the micro dial feature where you can sneak up on a cut by 0.02mm or thereabouts. I use my table saw for tenons, dados erc and it comes in handy for this. Itís super smooth also. Highly recommended.

    Glued up the upper and lower side stretchers today. Iíve been using an ink roller to spread the glue, it made gluing up 8 faces an absolute breeze.

    Next step is to clean up the edges and cut to length the legs, front and side stretchers and start working on the top.

    Cheers
