« Part 1: first look Part 2 of Table saw island series Part 3: progress continues »

I am really happy with the way things have come together on my latest project, The table saw island.
Today I got the torsion box structure in place.
After taking these pictures I cut the top of the torsion box, but it needs to be trimmed some more to fit right. I made an attempt to cut it out and put it in place but ran out of time for tonight, left there at 8:45 and it’s a 45min drive home.
In one of the pictures you will see what I came up with for the dust collection to the saw.
If I can talk my friend into a small cyclone dust collector, this dust port should work well.
I now need to finish the top, cut the miter slot in the top, than start on all the doors and drawers.
The 28” slides and euro hinges are in so I now have all the hardware we need.

Very nice! I sure wish I had the space to dedicate such a beast to my own work area(s). The very large table saw work area will be very beneficial and will give multiple work areas. I also like the use of drawers/doors.

Looking good buddy! I wish my shop was wider so I could have more support on the left side like you do. I am going to put an outrigger on my saw when I get some time. You are really going to enjoy all that extra support and storage you are going to have. Thanks for posting.

God Bless

My jealousy is getting in the way of giving a compliment…...Ok I’m past it. Great work on the table. The storage will be awesome. You’ll be able to cut just about anything with great support, too. Can’t wait to see the finished product!
