I’m new to Lumber Jocks,so I don’t know if this is concidered a project, or not?. If not let me know, I will remove.

Just put this together real quick, pretty basic. Just for extra storage for my table saw accessories. (Kreg Miter gauge, feather boards, push sticks, blade inserts, dado blade, etc)

I can’t decide if it looks good or not? I know it will be handy at least.

Please let me know what you think.

-- Thank You Trevor OBrion

I certainly consider it a project. Looks like you did a good job. I did something similar but I added a block along the side to hold my miter gauges.

Keep up the posts.

Thanks for the post, set me to thinking, I use my the end of my tablesaw as a worktable, slightly extended with a vise there. I could redo it with storage and a wood work top.

Thats a great idea. It certainly has my gears turning now. Question though: how did you attach it to the saw? Also, how did you ensure it was level with the rest of the table saw surface? Reason I ask is because I just got through leveling my table top again after years of abuse and it was a real pain. I desperately need storage on that side of the saw so this might be my next project.

Thanks for the inspiration!

I actually took the piece that holds the miter gauge off the table saw and put it on the side of storage box I made. I did this because my new kreg miter gauge was to big to fit where it was originally.

When I took the picture the clear coat was still drying. So there is nothing in storage area. Ill have to take another with all the stuff in it. When its dry

So the top piece (wooden table wing, whatever you call it lol) is secured to table saw the same way the original steal side wing was. With origional nut and bolt hardware that came with table saw secured to front and back rails.

The top piece was made first. My origional plan was to make a router table out of it. (Still might do this, just on other side)

Then the 3 storage cubbys was added just last night. All it is, is a very basic rectangular box with 3 cubbys pocket screwed to the bottom of wooden side wing. This was the easiest way I could think of to mount it without removing side wing from saw.

The pocket wholes are inside the top cubby. So unable to see from outside. Had to instal shelf after it was mounted

Glad to give you the idea. Hope it helped. Let me know.

I got the side level with cast iron top by placing to 6 ft levels. (Should have nice straight edge) on top of both surfaces (cast iron top and right and left side wing) then clamp straight edge/ level to right and left wing. This will keep everything flat while you bolt everything in place

Great job, I was debating on the Ridget R4512 or Delta 36-725 table saw. I have limited space in my shop, and wanted to build a work station similar to yours. I wanted it all together 4X8 work station on caster’s. Table saw, out feed, router, and assembly area in one unit. With the Ridget I will be able to remove the legs of the saw and mount it safely on the station. But I am having trouble getting an answer on the delta saw. I really want the delta because of the fence just not sure if it can be mounted safely to the station. Any help or ideas you might have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yes technically you could remove the bottom half to put the top on something you build.

All the features stay with the saw without the legs except being mobile of course. Casters are on legs
