Shop Build: Outfeed Table Base Build

Recommended Posts

The mac & cheese looks good too ! What is the other side dish ?


The Mac and cheese had lobster in it. It was really good.

The other is what they called sweet siracha brussel sprouts. It look like they just basically cooked them in fire cause they were burnt black and then covered in sauce. Surprisingly they were awesome.

It takes all kinds of people to make a world. In my world "awesome " and Brussel sprouts do not occupy the same universe !

Perry’s originated here in Houston and we’ve been a couple of times. Someone must really love you as that place is pricey!

Hahaha .... but they could! These didn’t taste anything like brussel sprouts.

Oh did it? That’s cool! It was the first time I’ve ever been there and yes pricey is right! But the wife does like to celebrate big occasions so who am I to tell her no to a steakhouse dinner :)

The leveling feet look like what I would choose. Do the casters lever up & down somehow ?



What do you mean lever up and down?

So every time the table needs to roll you have to raise all the leveling feet ? Mobile bases on power tools the casters raise & lower so the leveling feet can stay the same.  If you mark places on the floor it's helpful when you want to move the table back to the same location.

Oooh I see what you are saying. No, at least my plan is not that.

I am assuming when not in use they will sit out of the way. When I need them they will raise the bench off the ground.... at least I really hope that is how it works haha.

Went on lunch break and got the beginning wood for it.

I’m debating on 1/2 or 1/4” back panels. Does it matter? Just figured a little lighter would make it easier to move around and position ...

Won't matter much if it's on wheels. You probably won't unload it to move it will you ? Price isn't much more but 1/2" will be much stiffer and add rigidly. Even 3/4" would work better unless your clearances are too tight to allow the extra thickness.

I tend to overbuild things and then expect them to last 30 years or more. So far it's paid off for me. And if the base is sectional you can break it apart if you ever relocate.

Here is what I am thinking for the slide purchase. I am debating only getting real slides for the 3 big pull out drawers for the planer, sander and compressor. The rest of the drawers I am debating on putting in just some wood rails they can slide on. I think it will work just fine and save quite a bit of money since I am looking at having to buy about another 12-16 slides if I get them for every drawer. The other drawers will be small and not really hold any major weight, just smaller stuff that needs a home ..... thoughts?

That's a good choice using the 200 lb slides on the planer etc. KV 8405 22" slide should be around $10-$13 . The "05"  means the slide has overtravel, it pulls out an extra inch which gives you much better access to the contents of the drawer.

Yes I took your build it and last forever approach. 100lbs just seemed too close. Hmmm 10-13? Ok I’ll look around for them.

Minstalling some adjustable feet ... I only ordered 4 so I have to wait until tomorrow to get the other 4 I need ... I thought I had 8 haha

Installed the workbench casters as well. Nice and easy and seem to be decent quality. We shall see once I try and lift all this haha. I added an extra 3/4 piece to each caster to hopefully give it more strength and not break anything or rip the side of my cabinet off

And the other end installed.

Now the fun part tomorrow once I get the feet on ... removing that and putting cabinets under it so it doesn’t tip over while doing it

Kind of a quick look of what it will be ...
