Most bandsaw tables provide little support for long workpieces. You can use an outfeed stand or clamp on a temporary extra-large table, but why hassle with those when you can add a permanent and adjustable extension table?

Here's how. Attach a pair of medium- or heavy-duty drawer slides to the bandsaw table. You'll need to drill and tap the table for mounting screws. Attach to the slides a wood extension that's wide enough to extend the bandsaw table to the end of the non-sliding part of the slides. To the ends of the sliding arms mount a wood support that extends in or out as needed.
