I made this months ago but had it out to start my kayak build project so I thought I would post a couple of quick pics. I found the video on youtube of this guys table which looked perfect for my garage shop as it really saves space when not in use (takes up about 2'x2').

I still have to put little adjustable feet on the front lags but have been to lazy to do it so far. I can't find the link to his website for the life of me but I do have his email address if anyone would like it. For $8 (that's cheap) he sends you a pdf and sketchup file that have every dimension you could possibly want.

He made his own top which would definitely save you money. My top is an MFT replacement top ($120 off Amazon) and another piece of 3/4 MDF I plan to cut a router insert into eventually. I bought a set of Precision Dogs which are awesome and Viola!. Works great.

Thanks. I just found the link. It was in an older folder (duh).

Just note, I have no affiliation with this guy (he's on the other side of the world). Nice fellow though. Answered my question as quickly as the time difference would allow.

As far as time goes, this really didn't take all that long to put together. I made a cut list from the plans and knocked it out on a weekend afternoon. It's not sexy but it works great and (minus the MFT top) it was cheap. I had the leftover MDF, but the rest of it is a handful of 2X6's from HD that I ripped down to 5" to make them nicer looking. The bottom shelf is super handy for placing the saw between cuts or placing the track and saw when you are laying out other things.

But I m confused - I thought you built a track saw?

Maybe I should have changed the title but not sure if everyone knows what an MFT is. My track saw is the dewalt with 55" and 108" tracks. I love the darn thing.

The base could have been smaller but I wanted to make sure it was stable when upright since its close to 6' tall that way (safer for the kids and if it gets bumped into).
