Ok, I bought a contractors saw for woodworking, but it does the job for me. LOL… I started with a Jet 10” 1.5hp table saw. I like the Jet because the motor is in the cabinet not hanging off of the back. Due to my small shop I need to ‘create’ space where ever I can. I removed the legs and set the saw into this cabinet with an extension on the right side to give me space for a pull out shelf to house my mortiser. There is a large cutout under the saw body to allow the motor to tilt when cutting miters. This cutout gave me the perfect spot for dust collection. The back 1/2 of the lower middle compartment is sealed and a 14”x14” dust collection hood is attached to the back wall. I put in some drawers, added a removable extention table to the rear and finished with an HTC (Beismeyer clone) fence system. This cost me a weekend and just short of $700 from start to finish. I started drawing the cabinet to put under my radial arm and miter saws to utilize a single fixed fence with similar storage underneath. Wish me luck!!
