Project Information

My 2nd project.

Once I saw this plan in a book, I knew it was for my shop.

I didn't have any jigs, so the plywood cuts weren't 90°, so it didn't come together like I would have hoped. It may not be super pretty, but it gets the job done and it served as a learning project.

It serves as a nice router table as well. I need to get a better fence on it, though.

nice job yzf600,

I've got to tackle one of these at some point in the future, I need the storage! I will probably put the router where the fence from the saw will cover it, tho I do have a fence that mounts on tee track that is pretty handy. I also plan on building off the back to enclose the motor to make d/c easier

mdf for top??

This is a great addition to any shop. It adds mobility to your saw and router table. It adds much needed storage space and sheet good support.

Good job.

Very nice work station. You need not worry about out of square. How many people carry a framing square around with them? Your table looks pretty good to me.

It looks better than what I have been using since discovering that I couldn't get square no matter how hard I work with my (p.o.s.) craftsman starter contractor table saw. I had to mount a 3/4" sheet of cabinet grade plywood to the top, raise the blade through it, then route a dado for a miter gauge. It has serve it's purpose for all the projects I've posted so far. I was going to upgrade all the way to a $1500 cabinet saw and install the INCRA LSIII positioner with router combo, but blew my engine on my truck, forcing me to repair it or be forced to buy a new car.
Anyway, Your table is awesome, it rocks.

OK, I need this. I'm looking for storage and organizing solutions for my shop. I have a little floor space to put something like this, and it looks like it is pretty well put together. It looks like a really useful idea, all the way around… good job on its construction.

Nice! Shop projects are great for trying things out and practicing w/o the stress of expecting it to end up in the living room.
Good work.

Nice addition to your shop. Looks like it came out pretty nice and should make live a little easier in the shop.

Great use of space and nice fix for a saw/router combo.You did a nice job in providing additional storage space.
Curious to the dimensions, surface of the table top and did you provide for dust collection??

What a great idea. You can never have enough cupboards and drawers and its going to keep the little one (huggies) out of your dangerous stuff.

I like it! I like it a lot. I need to build something like this for my little saw, and this is almost exactly what I have in mind. Thanks for the inspiration!

Awesome! You certainly couldn't tell it is not square from looking at it. Great solution for storage also, great job!

What book was this in? I have been trying to find a design exactly like this for my new shop. This would be perfect (with a couple of modifications, of course hehe).
