This project sort of evolved. When I purchased a new Unisaw I knew my old run-off table (small though it was) wouldn’t work well with the new saw. I wanted something with tool storage, was movable (my wife insists on parking cars and doing laundry in my shop), and while I was at it I figured it could act as a miter saw table as well.

These are photos of the work in progress. Lumber core ply, maple drawer fronts, walnut handles. It’s 5’ long by 2’ wide.

I still need to make a removable fence for the miter saw. It will also have another 2 foot “wing” that will fold against the back for storage and be raised when I’m dealing with sheet goods.

Once finished I’ll post an update.

This is a nice multi-purpose tool cabinet that you have built. I like the idea of mobility and including the miter saw addition as well.

WOW !! This is a fantastic multi use idea : ) I have a small basement shop and I really need to get rid of some single use “furniture” of my problems is that my floor isn’t level and my outfeed table HAS to be adjustable , but I can something like yours in my future …. Those full extension glides make a great addition as well : ) Thanks for posting such a great project…

Outstanding! I’m trying to figure out if I can make room for one like this.

I really like the handles you put on front of the cabinets. Gives it a real nice visual appeal.
