The board that runs through the center of the unit is clamped to the workbench. Adjust the height of the outfeed table by moving the board up or down and clamping it into place. Since the outfeed table is adjustable, it can be used with other workshop tools besides the table saw.
Cut the tabletop out of 3/4" melamine or laminated material. This provides a smooth surface for boards to slide across during a cut. The measurements for this project will be determined by the size of the workbench and the table saw.
Start by making the supports for the top of the adjustable outfeed table. This section has two support pieces and two side pieces made of 3/4" plywood. Cut each side of the support pieces at a 45-degree angle.
Screw the pieces together using a spacer in between the side boards. The spacer should be the same size as the board that will be used for adjusting the height of the table. Drill pilot holes for this step to avoid tear-out.
When the support section is together, clamp the board for adjusting the unit to a workbench and place the support on top. This gives you a way to easily screw the board to the support, then screw the tabletop on as well.
