Well, new shop, new tools, and as much as I hated it, it was time to take apart the old cabinet, sell the SawStop contractor saw, and upgrade everything.

The is my successor to my previously posted Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

I really miss the convenience of having everything in drawers in front of the saw, available to quickly grab. But time for a serious upgrade of equipment.

So instead of the SawStop contractor saw, I purchased a SawStop Industrial Saw. 5HP, 3-Phase. A total beast. Totally outclasses the old saw. In addition, I added the floating overarm dust collection.

For additional storage, and a good working surface, I built a new cabinet to sit on the left side of the saw, with 16 drawers. Note to self, remind me never to build a cabinet with 16 drawers again. OMG it was a lot of work, and a ton of expense for 16 sets of large, soft-close drawer slides.

The new table is 71” L x 26”W with 24” drawers, so lots of storage space.

On the right side of the saw I wanted room for a serious router table that would allow my Ready2Rout system to fit without compromising crosscut width as I downsized the SawStop to 36” fence instead of my previous 52”. I’ll post one quick picture of that, but will also post that separately. Needless to say, it was also a pain to build, but a massive increase in storage.

BTW, can anyone tell me how to rotate pictures that you post here? The site seems to only want landscape pictures, not portrait.

nice build. I’m jealous.
More pics.

I use irfanview… really like it’s simplicity and abilities. rotate is l or r then you need to save it.
I often downsize from 16mp to 800 on the long side, I do it in batch so I can do a bunch of pics in 1 command.
you just hit b for batch and create settings, then save them.

I rotate it in photoshop, but it seems like the site just switches it to landscape, no matter the original orientation.

I’ll take some more pictures later.

The SawStop ICS is amazing. Difference in power and smoothness over the SawStop Contractors saw (which I loved) is amazing.

I didn’t mention that the floor underneath the workshop is a raised access floor, so the dust collection runs to the table saw, router, overarm dust collector, and router fence all travel under the floor and come up through holes.

I have to make some automatic blast gates for them, as reaching down to turn them on/off is a little annoying, but it’s a very clean installation.

Been really busy at work, but I need to get some pictures of the other sides of the table, the extension table (also filled with drawers and a sander), router table, etc…

There never seems to be enough storage. I still have multiple large jigs with no place to put them, as well as large sanding rolls for my belt sander with no home for now. So lots more to figure out.

Nice cabinet. Love the drawers, shelves are overrated. Your shop looks beautiful. I’d never go into the house.

Thanks for posting, and congrats on your 3. Enjoy the new digs, and tools.

I thought I’d add a few more pictures of the setup. Here are a few of the outfeed table cabinet, which has lots more storage for jigs, manual saws, router bits, as well as a head on view of the SawStop ICS and the overarm dust collector.

OK, I was just nicely sent a PM from LittleBlackDuck showing me how to get the pictures to stop rotating sideways.
How to fix images that just keep posting sideways

Let’s give it a go with that picture above that just won’t orient correctly:

OK. Took a bunch of steps, but importantly did work. Thanks for the assist. This will be helpful going forward with posting projects. I’m quite a few behind.

Not a photographic masterpiece, but it shows the back of the outfeed table, which holds some large jigs, saws, and router bits. I’ll take some more pictures of that later.
