I enjoy having guests visit my shop, but after discovering rust rings on my tablesaw's cast-iron top left behind by sweaty soda cans, I decided a protective cover was in order. And it needed to do more than simply cover the top.

By adding a pair of legs to the cover and mounting it to the tablesaw's outfeed rail with simple wooden hinges, I can flip it down to serve as an outfeed table.
