After months of thought and research I finally decided to build a new stand for my Craftsman 113 table saw, and here are the results.

The wood is all pallet wood I have been collecting. I ran across a treasure trove of pallets used one time made from 2×4s, 1×4s, and OSB decking. I already had some shipping pallets. All I had to buy was hardware.

I plan to put a router table in the area to the left of the saw and to modify the blade guard to include dust collection. There is dust collection built in underneath. I also plan to add outlets on the ends.

My next project will be an outfeed table/workbench that goes behind it, with a sanding area on the end that includes a downdraft table that will double as an air circulation and purification system.

I dig it.

Did you consider integrating a router lift?

I did but I’m cheap and am leaning toward a drop in situation. The left side has a friction fit removable top that I plan to make a place for a trim router. The box underneath will be the underneath dust collection with a port to the rear. The fence will have overhead dust collection. The box will store fence and hoses when not in use. The drawer under that holds the router and attachments.

That’s a really nice saw station!
I whish I had room for a station like this for my Craftsman saw …. but I don’t even have anything close in spare room.

Stellar job on the build of the table saw station….I thin these old Craftsman saws deserve a new home so they can do their work….!! I built a station for my old 1985 Craftsman several years ago, and give an old work horse new life…..!! Like you, I have plenty of storage for tools, feather boards, an old Delta tenon jig, etc…...Dust collection, also I changed out the old crappy fence when I bought it new in ‘85, and installed a Delta fence and rails…..!! I also have a Delta Unisaw and use the old Craftsman to cut rabbits and dados only….!!

Latest addition to the table saw stand: overhead dust collection. Works alright, but not as much suction at the blade as I would like. It makes much less of a mess than it used to .

Have your say...
