Super-simple outfeed table features oodles of storage

I couldn’t find a commercially available tablesaw outfeed table with ample built-in storage, and didn’t want to invest weeks in building one. So I bought a large tool chest and attached to it a 3×4' top made of two layers of 34 " MDF with solid-wood edges. Carriage bolts through the side edges hold the top to the chest; wooden blocks under the chest position the table level with the tablesaw top. Depending on your tablesaw and miter gauge, you may need to rout channels into the outfeed table to accommodate the miter gauge’s bar.
