Getting back into woodworking and needed a table saw stand as my Ryobi BT3100 table saw was mounted to a rolling dolly cart just to be mobile but was basically unusable. So I made this one for it. It’s still a work in progress. It’s got a big open space for my sleds and add-ons and three drawers for various other stuff. The box is 24”, so the drawers are deep and hold a lot of stuff. I wanted to roll it around and put it on casters, but even locking ones wouldn’t hold it still enough to be safe. So I came up with a hinged idea where I joined two 4”x4” feet to a stringer (using Rockler Beadlock) and hinged them. I installed a simple gate latch to hold them up while I roll it around. When I want them down, I lift the end up slightly and drop the feet under. When I go mobile, I lift up slightly on each end and pull them out with my foot. Then I latch them up. After reading a LOT of BT3K sites, I did some saw upgrades to make it closer to a real table saw so check out my blog on that.
