Project Information

Well I picked up a cabimet saw this winter and it seems like I am spending more time working on "projects" for the saw in order to work on a project than working on real projects. I started with a 32"x72" folding outfeed table that doubles as a downdraft table with a 4" dust collection port on each end. I then added a 29" wide by 38" deep extension wing on the right to fill in between the fence rails. I now have a 6' x 6.5' surface to work with. Lastly is the cross cut sled. With a big cast iron table, I figured I might as well build a recent sized sled. It is 49" wide and 32" deep with a cutting capacity of 25". Since the 14" blade will cut over 5" deep, I made the fence 7" high. These are not fancy or pretty for that matter, but for being cost conscious, the additions function well and make life much easier. Especially when working with full sheets of plywood or 16/4 lumber.

Projects for the saw will pay you back a hundredfold, every time you use the saw! You've got your priorities right.

It is definitely nice to have. No more having to set up a roller stand when cutting linger stock and at 6.5 feet wide, ripping sheet goods is a piece of cake. And the down draft really works well.
