After doing a few projects, I have decided that I want a table that can hold my table saw, router, and scroll saw. I am relatively new to woodworking, so this is a big step for me. Right now, the top has been framed in. I will add drawers below for storage, and an aftermarket fence. Top dimensions are 36×84. I’m hoping that this works out, and I don’t regret this later. I plan on making my own router lift, and using nutserts to mount the scroll saw, but still remove it. Garage space is hard to come by, so I want most things on one table. If anyone things I should do something different, let me know.

This seems like an awesome Idea. I’m not pro but I would definitely want a little extra support under that table saw. don’t want that thing dropping through while ripping some wood. As for the space issue, I had the same issue in my 1 car garage. I put mine on wheels with locks, ran a power strip with an extension cord on a retractable reel so I could roll it outside or just push it up against the wall in the garage when not in use. Mine was very similar to yours, instead of a scroll saw I built an inlay for my chop saw. Good luck, looks like a great start.

Have your say...
