To start things off, I wanted the four things in the table top that I had before in my old table; a downdraft area, a router lift, a tool tray, and a vice (see the vice install video) with dog holes. I got all that back in the new table. I changed up the downdraft a little by not making the box as deep to allow for a more pressurized chamber and I moved the dust port over to the left to allow for more storage underneath. The other three things stayed about the same.
I do want to mention here that as of the writing of this article the t-track and miter track were not installed into the table top. They were ordered, but were not delivered in time for the project. You can follow us on Instagram to get up to date postings.
The entire table is made from 3/4″ PureBond Plywood. PureBond Plywood really is a great product. I’ve worked with it before and liked it, so I wanted to build this project with it. So far so good. All the plywood has really made this table heavy. I used a hand plane in the vice and between bench dogs with no trouble. The table didn’t experience any racking or movement at all. This could serve as an outfeed table, an assembly table, and also as a work bench (for hand tools). Three tables in one means it’s a space saver!
All in all this build turned out better than expected. I’m sure there will be some things I will want to change in the future and also add on as I grow. If you are interested in the plans you can find them here… Outfeed Assembly Table Plans, and if you’re interested in using Jay’s router lift along with the table you can find those plans here… Router Lift Plan. Also, as a bonus, when you purchase the Outfeed Assembly Table Plans you will receive the Router Fence Plan for free.
