Terms of the Trade: What Is an Outfeed Table?

Lead Image

An outfeed table is one of those pieces of equipment in a workshop that can make all the difference for someone who uses their table saw a lot. It's simply a platform, typically in the form of some sort of table, that catches or supports the wood being cut as it moves along the saw blade. To serve this purpose, some table saws come with extensions that fold out when needed, but many DIYers also make their own outfeed tables.
