This was my first ever attempt at a project to contain the only 3 power tools I owned a number of years ago. Someone said I should toss it up to the project page to see if anyone else can use it for their own needs.
This was before the knowledge of flip top tables. The goal was to have a outfeed table for my Bosch 4100 contractor saw, a home for my bosch router table, and bosch compound miter saw. Actually, it worked out pretty great for it’s simplicity. I had to manually install and remove the panels. Now that I think about it, I really could of done wonders with it :) Also, this thing is not squared anywhere and is held together by deck screws, long before I knew about joinery techniques. And I think those are JUST 3” castors!!

Great idea. I can see a small shop owner liking this allot. At fist I only looked at the large picture and thought to myself he must only make small items because everything is so close together.

Love the project! It would be great for a smaller basement or garage that SWMBO won’t let you take over.

This is a cool idea. My garage is my shop so I’m dying for space. I may have to do something like this for several of my bench tools.

I no longer have this mobile station, as I grew to despise moving this thing around (which is a MUST in my small garage shop). What I would reconfigure: put 4 or 6 castors using 6”, mortise and tenon instead of deck screws, piano hinge the miter saw and router platforms, torsion box the top panels for flatness with it being hinged to swing out of the way instead of manually lifting to remove and install, add fold out wings for the miter saw, piano hinge the table saw platform so it too can fall down, giving right hand space for the router.
Also note, there was dead space behind the router. Could be used for shop vac, jig saw, etc.
