While working on my router table I discovered that I was in desperate need for a more permanent outfeed table for my Unisaw. Cutting sheet goods by myself is already enough of a challenge without having to worry about pieces falling off the end of the table saw as the pieces are cut.

Key to my design would be the ability to fold the majority of the table down when not in use to conserve space while adding about 12 of permanent table area behind the blade.
