This is the start of my next project. I’m building a slightly modified version of the Ultimate Table Saw Cabinet designed and built by Drew Short over at Rock-N H Woodshop. Since I still have to be able to roll my cabinet out of the way to park both cars in the garage at night I had to make a few adjustments. I have it planed out for 7 sheets of plywood and 1 sheet of white board for the top. This will house my Delta 36-725 table saw and have plenty of tool storage.

Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the build. Take pictures and show us the result when you have completed the project.

Am I missing something, where’s the finished project this section is reserved for?

bigblockyeti – You are not missing anything. This is a project that has just been started and I will add photos as I make progress as well as once it is complete. I wasn’t aware that I could not post pictures and updates of an in-work project in this section.

I think you could Gary—but (unless I’m mistaken) you would have to add them as new comment(s) to this project.

I believe the Blogs section is where someone might create a running log of a project. I’ve never posted there, but I might explore it for my next project.

Looking forward to seeing your progress on this project. A while back I started working on a table saw station that I saw in ShopNotes magazine, but I put it aside to work on something else and never came back to it.

I still have the parts that I completed in a stack on the side of my workshop. Perhaps your project will give me inspiration to complete mine!

Bill_Steele – I just checked and I have the ability to edit the post and add photos without having to add them as a new comment. I have a big build coming up in two weeks so have to have it finished by the beginning of next week so that I will have a large enough work surface for the project so it has to get done.

I finally got it finished. Well not finished, but I can at least use for my current projects. I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do for the storage. I currently have a lot of tools just stored in the openings while I try and figure out the best configuration of doors and drawers. Until that I happens I’m going to use it as it is. I actually completed my first small project last night using the new table saw cabinet. It sure was nice to be able to have 8’ of work space for cutting, staging and assembly.

It looks really nice! Maybe you can add a router plate on one side? I’ve seen some people do that. My table saw has a 30” fence and I added a small extension on the right side for a router. I can take some pics if you want. If you don’t have much space (like me) then you have to be creative how you fit in the tools.

I can see where all that extra surface area for staging parts to be cut would come in handy. I often put all the parts to be cut on the right side of the fence and then just work from there.

Great job!

Thank you. I thought about mounting the router in the far right end of the table but I don’t want to lose the storage capacity. I have a 2’ ledge along the front of my shop where I have just enough room to set a router cabinet. My plan is to build or repurpose a small cabinet and mount my router table to the top and use the storage below for all my router bits and various router specific tools.
