So I got this DeWalt portable table saw for Christmas (a bit early). My old table saw died and I was on the hunt for a new one. I used the old table saw stand and added drawers and a mobile base. The drawers and casters I had left over from previous projects and it was just a matter of making everything fit.

Turns out so far every thing is fine. I will add a third drawer or shelf later. Perhaps some additional dressing on the siode and back. One thing I will add is a major surge protector strip on the back. Not only for protection but to have the extra plugs.

Took a while to make but I wanted to make sure that everything fit the way I wanted it on this project. So far the Santa is happy.

The wood frame is from 2×2 oak that I had left over and the front and drawer facings are 3/4” baltic birch ply. IT has about 10 pounds of screws and 5 pounds of glue to make it solid. THe saw is mounted to the top with lag screws so if I need to haul it all I need to do is remove the screws.

Thanks for looking.

Nicely done—I agree on using the space under tool for storage and built in drawers.
