An outfeed table helps make tablesaw operation safer and provides valuable workspace for assembly and finishing. But the space beneath it is often wasted. John White solves that problem with this design, which has a cabinet below it with dedicated storage areas for the rip fence, miter gauge, crosscut sled, blades, and several big drawers for jigs. There's also plenty of shelf space for general storage, as well as room on the end panels for clamps. The large phenolic-plywood top resists stains and glue, so it's perfect for assembly and finishing. It's easy to adjust the table's height and level it, too.

Best of all, this outfeed table is not difficult to build. The cabinet itself is joined by butt joints held together with screws. The drawers are joined by a rabbet-and-groove joint that requires only two tablesaw setups.
