This was one of those projects that I had been kicking around for a while. It’s big, and kills off a lot of floor space… but it was totally worth it. My tablesaw is much handier to use, much more stable, and I really like having the extra work surface when needed.
The base is a torsion box built out of ¾ ply.
The carcass is ¾ ply with rails and stiles and corner molding that I cut from 2×6’s.
The top is laminated ¾ ply (my current obsession).
There’s a 20 amp 4 gang outlet on each side (this has been much more convenient than I thought it would be).
The Rip fence addition gives me additional clamping surface for feather boards, and creates a great storage spot to keep misc. stuff off the table. It’s friction fit over the original fence.
The dust collection area underneath is angled toward the port and lined with aluminum flashing to help the sawdust slide (should have taken pics of this during the build).
It took some work to get everything lined up correctly, but it’s pretty accurate and the top is reasonably flat. The saw is bolted into the top from the edges, so it can be removed if needed.
Thanks for looking
