So in setting up my shop the way I want to, I am putting most of the major tools that take up floor space onto carts. This time it is my tablesaw and an extension for the router to act as a router table.
I am making the extension to more or less work with the tablesaw’s existing fence, both to extend my cut capacity on the saw, and to not have another tool table to have to make space for.

The main cart is basic pine, cheap furring strips from the local Lowes, cut square there needed.

The tablesaw side will have a shelf and a storage bin for the blades and bits along with the feather boards and parts for the fence

The tablesaw side of the cart was built to have a dust director… A sloped panel with the opening at the back side of the cart to help consolidate the dust pile.

The router table side is cut to match the profile of the tablesaw’s so the fence can be used all along the top.

The router insert is 1/2” plexiglass… And fitted into the extension.

The space under the router is used to store my tablesaw sleds and other attachments for the two tools.
