I am building a table saw island to add out feed and and cross cut capability, to this craftsman table saw. A customer from my stereo install days, asked me to build him a table around his table saw. When I complete this I am going to build and fabricate car stereo and interior panels, enclosure, and a custom console for his cherry 67 Camaro. This bench/table should be great for woodworking. The pictures show my progress at the end of the third day. I included plenty of storage with deep cabinets. The plan calls for 28 inch drawer slides on 6 drawers and pull out trays. I’m building this island out of mdf. The saw can be slid forward to service the motor and will not be attached to the island. The back side will soon have adjustable shelves and a small air compressor. The best feature is the adjustable feet which will aid in leveling the table top with the saw (no need to notch the top for mounting bolts on the table saw, it will not be attached). The next step is to remove the table extentions and fabricate the torsion box style top which will be 49”x97” (a whole sheet of mdf). I really am going for a smooth seamless top just the saw and extended miter slots.
What do you think?
