I would like start by giving a big shout out to Drew at the Rockn H Woodshop. I took inspiration for this build from his “Ultimate table saw” project and video’s on his youtube channel. He does an awesome job of showing how his was done and that helped make my build more successful. Thank you Drew.

My original idea was to scale down this project to a smaller version but that idea quickly faded. The thought of having all this storage was just to compelling. Overall dimensions are as follows, 8ft long by 3ft wide and 37 5/16” high. The top is laminated and it rolls on six 4” 200lb castors. She has 16 sliding drawers and 4 swing open doors.

This cabinet has completely changed how I am able work. I have the ability now to cut full sheets of plywood. I can move easily to the router without interfering with a saw setup or vice versa. Everything is now at my finger tips from saw blades and router bits to tape measures and pencils. I could go on and on about all the great things this saw cabinet can do but let’s address the obvious weakness and that’s the rip fence. It just wasn’t in the budget for now and will be a easy add on when that money becomes available.

I did start a blog on this build but that took away time from actually getting the thing built so I stopped after 3 weeks Here are some pics of the build. Enjoy!

Should serve you well for years to come. All that storage and organization will pay big dividends over the years. I hope I can build something like this in the near future.

I knew that question would come up sooner or later. I use a shop vac and dust deputy for now. I have to switch back and forth between the saw and the router right now. I purposely left out any pictures of the back because that part isn’t finished yet. I have a cool idea for it and will post it when it’s complete.

Those drawers have two slides mounted on the one side and spaced 10” apart and 5 3/4” from the bottom

Looks great and should provide plenty of streamline work.

Heisinberg, can you help me with a few things on this project? I am about to buy a Ridgid R4512 Table saw and do the same thing and I was wondering if you could explain to me or show me how you got the fence rail system to fit appropriately and still have the finished outer skirting on the top of the table….my email is [email protected] if you can shoot me an email so it’s easier to communicate. Thanks.

Did you also make a torsion box for the top?
