Learn how to repurpose old cabinets in the shop to make a new outfeed table for my table saw.  I’ll show you the tools and techniques to do this woodworking project in your work area.  You can use the same process to refinish old cabinets with drawers.

The finished outfeed table with new surface and painted cabinets to match the others in the shop. I’ll eventually secure the cabinets to the floor once I use the outfeed table on a few projects to figure out the best configuration. There is a ton of new storage underneath and in the drawers.
