It is time to create a little more room in my very small shop. I am getting ready to start building a new bench and decided the router table needed to go. Well the router table needs to stay, the cabinet needs to go. I used some Ash as a border / frame so I could attach it to the saw. I already used it making a serving tray and the set up works well. Next is a couple small storage cabinets below and I need to modify my fence on the router side so it can be used for the saw and router. Once the storage is added I will post a finished photo. Feel free to comment, good or bad.

I really like it – Did you work from plans or just your own invention… This is a really good idea and I think I would like to do it myself.

Great idea. You will get lot of use from this. I put mine on my saw 25 years ago. Never regreted it. Back then we didn’t have the router base kits that are available now. I used 1/8 thick. sheet metal.

Looks great, I can’t decide how to tackle this project. It keeps getting bumped down the LIST. Can’t wait till it takes a greater priority. Think I’ll steal your work and take it straight to favorites. Thanks, BTKS

Hi Guys,

I seen a couple saws out there set up this way, and with space being such a commodity, I finally convinced myself it needed to be done. All I did was remove the wing on the saw cut my table down and 8 fasteners and 2 bolts it was complete in just under a hour using CA glue. First time using this type of glue and I hope it holds up. Thanks for commenting.

I think this is a great idea for small shops. I have a ridgid saw and want to do this but I am affraid of warping the rails. Gonna have to add some extra support I guess. The rails look pretty beefy on your so I don’t think you will have a problem.
