Spent several months trying to find an outfeed table for my tablesaw or plans for such. However, every plan or product didn’t seem to support my Craftsman contractor saw. After watching a few Youtube Videos I came up with a cabinet/outfeed table design shown here…oh, I should mention first I build a rolling cabinet with dust collection to replace the metal stand for the tablesaw. Fairly happy with it.

Its made with melamine sheet stock, planned 4×4s, and 3/4 birch plywood.

Very nicely done, I might try my hand at one also.

Nice design. I have the same issue with my saw. Thanks for sharing it.

Wouldn’t mind seeing some pics of that rolling cabinet you mentioned. I need to clean up the bottom of my contractor before winter sets in and the cat claims the dry sawdust for his own purposes.

You’ve done some amazing things with the Craftsman 113. I have the same saw. I think your entire TS setup would fill all the floorspace in my shop!

Greg, if you got to my Contractor Saw to Cabinet Saw Conversion project you’ll see more pictures of the rolling cabinet. I used (8) 4” locking wheels purchased from Rockler for a stable and strong base, 3/4 Birch Plywood joined using a Kreg Pocket Hole Jig.

I viewed your conversion project and quite frankly I passed it on by after counting the number of 4” wheels I knew it was much larger than my “shop” could handle (12’ wide). I’m still considering a new base, just have to move stuff from its current residence to clear sufficient width to provide a steady saw base.

Sorry for the neck crimp, working off this fangled i-Pad
P.S., Thanks for the “buddy” nod, I’ll reciprocate.

Greg, The table saw less the sliding table is ~ 6 ft right to left. The wheels are every 2ft for added strength. Call it over engineering, but I wanted to be sure it wouldn’t sag.

Regarding the conversion, I added a new fence which increased the size. The cabinet you could build could be the same width as your current table and wings…It just depends on what you want. Take a look at Laney Shaughnessy's video that is what inspired the idea.

You people want to drool take a look at The Ultimate Table Saw Cabinet by Rock-n H Woodshop this will make you salivate. Wow, something for me to aspire to in the future.

Started looking at Rock-n H Woodshop table saw cabinet again for upgrade ideas to mine. Think I’ll noodle around with the idea of adding built-in Saw blade file cabinet, pullout drawer, or some combination of both. I saw online someone made a series of fitted slides in a cabinet for their blades while others created a simple sloted rack to drop the blades into. Any opinions what works best?
