I’m sure that like most of you I got my first set of tools as hand-me-downs. Mine came mostly from my father and my great grand father. Part of that original collection was an old Craftsman table saw from my father. I used it for nearly 12 years after it was already well used by him. After the saw broke down I saved many of its parts for future use. This table uses the steel extensions for the side walls and the guide rail with ruler for the front edge of the shelf. Going with one of my other projects, this is a foyer/hall table is also made from part of a wood spool that was 48 inches across.
The spool was cut into a few even strips for the top and bottom and then screwed into place on the table saw extensions. The back supports and the shelf were made from palette pieces. The table was then placed on casters for the extra height and mobility. It is about 42 inches wide, 34 inches table and 11 inches deep. Everything was sanded some and then left unfinished. I wanted to keep the age in the wood and to show the history/use of the table saw parts.
