Hi lumberjocks

I needed a stand for my tablesaw, and came up with this solution.
The table collects all sawdust in a drawer, that normally pile up beneath the saw.
Once in a while I empty it out, and the kids have sawdust for their rabbit.

Generally when I build for myself, Im cheap and make due, with whatever I have in the shop. In my job as carpenter, I save exotic scraps of wood, from any deckbuilds or similar.
The white oak panels on the sides, used to be the floor in my hall. I saved a bunch of it, when I replaced it last year. You can tell it´s been washed 100 times with the girlfriends nasty whitening floor-soap.

Wood: Cheap pine, Bankarai for detail, and Oak flooring for panelsides.

Coating: 2 x Linseed oil (and that damned whitewash)

Joinery: Grooves for panels, Halflaps for the frame and Dovetals for the drawer.

Metal: Aluminium handle and a set of full extension drawer slides

Total expenses on this build: $0

Have a good day

Nice little maschine you have there. Excellent solution for sawdust. I use vacuum cleaner but still there are some sawdust beneath tablesaw.

I also have a dedicated vacuum cleaner connected directly to the saw.
It´s connected so it starts automaticly when ever I turn on the saw.

I still managed to fill the drawer to the brim with sawdust.
