Nice job. I believe an outfeed table is a necessary safety item on a table saw. It helps to avoid the need to lean over the saw blade when you finish a cut.
My father-in-law was ripping some 1x's to make a door jamb - a small portable TS, and he was using a couple of cardboard boxes stacked on top of each other as an outfeed support. Guess you can tell where this story is going ......... One board drooped a little more than the previous, bumped into the top box and knocked it off the pile and the board started to lift off the table. He grabbed it and, fortunately, missed most of it and luckily only took a little bite out of the edge of his palm. A co-worker did something similar and wasn't so lucky lost part of one finger and partial use of another due to tendon damage.
