I am devising a reducer molding for a flooring job I recently completed. Two doorways and a 9 foot span across a kitchen to dining room opening.
I decided that I had to come up with some sort of outfeed table. Router tables are new to me, so all I can envision using it for in short time, will be small items like trim or moldings.
I decided on a narrow outfeed table long enough to support 8' material.
I need everything on this table to be portable, for storage or taken to a job site. This table extension needs to be easily installed and removed. It folds flat when not needed.
So here's my mini-outfeed table. It's more like a ramp. It's just under 7 inches wide. I used two pieces of 1 by 4 pine that I had at the house. I split one board in half, then jointed all edges true using the split fence, and combined the 3 pieces of pine together to make the 7 inch wide outfeed table.
Kind of a fun learning process, something I haven't done before.
The outfeed table needed a leg to stand on. It also needed of course, to be adjustable.
Hope the images show what it is and what it does.
I made. 3/8" or so rabbit joint for the adjustable part of the leg to fit into. The slots would have done just fine on their own without having the support of the rabbit...... but I guess this was a great time to practice using my new toy.
Anyhow, most members have seen my bits and pieces that I have placed randomly, but they make more sense (I hope) when stacked together like this as a project.
Table still doesn't have legs yet..... another day.
For now, it's functional on my table saw table..... sort of.
