My garage shop required a mobile table saw, and this was my solution. 1977 Craftsman saw, Vega 50 fence, Incra 1000 miter gauge, Benchdog router table, Bosch 1617 router, Incra lift (if you haven’t one save your shekels or put in your Xmas list). Carcass is 3/4” BB. Drawers are 1/2” BB, 4” deep mounted on 18” 100% slides. Drawer fronts are yellow pine, Minwax “Gunstock” stain, red oak trim, Minwax spar varnish. The subframe is squared-up 2×4s and is structural. Wheels are 4” urethane.

nice work and good use of that wasted space under the saw for storage. well done! did you incorporate dust collection in your setup?

I like it. Hoping to do something similar. Someday. How do you like having a router on the left wing of the saw? I have mine on the common right side, but it causes headaches with needing to move my overarm dust collection. What are the advantages/disadvantages of that setup? Never really considered it I guess.

Left side works very well. Stays out of the way of the fence. Provides support for my crosscut box. Has the advantage of additional miter guides should the need arise. I never gave placing it on the right side so haven’t an opinion one way or the other. I do not have a dust collection system for the TS but do have a modest one for the router. The Benchdog table design looks as though it could accommodate a shroud beneath it which would provide better dust control than the one built into the fence. Perhaps I will be energetic ….

That looks very large but very useful and the 4” wheels should make it easily mobile. You use this in a standard 2-car garage? Empty or shared with a car?

24×40, shared with 1 Forester, my tractor and implements, and entirely too much retained scrap (yet to be utilized) wood pieces on 2 rolling racks. I have 1 overhead door on the long wall at the shop end.
