This saw base cabinet I built last summer gives me lots of storage for tablesaw and router accessories. The extreme left door has a sheet metal set at a 45 degree slant to funnel sawdust down to the central sawdust system. I have a remote switch for the sawdust system at the miter saw and table saw. Sawdust system also carries the planer and jointer all with blast gates for all.
The extreme right door houses a Freud router and lift. Sawdust collection for the router is attached to a shopvac with a remote switch.
The cabinet is mounted on 3 inch rubber casters with foot locks. This allows easy access for any maintenance required to the back of the table saw. I love my epoxy floor but it’s so slick the casters will slide a little even when the casters are locked. So I have to recenter it every couple of weeks.
The outfeed table is 4’ 6” from the back of the saw blade. That allows 8 ft material to stay on the table without falling off the end when ripping on the tablesaw. It’s 5 ft wide to allow for support for long material going through the router. It has a melamine top and a full shelf under it about a foot above the floor for additional storage space.
