Quick post, made this the other day. I’ve been debating moving my shop around and started making some moves towards that. First, I decided I wanted to have a more dedicated assembly table. Previously had it positioned as outfeed and ran into some frustrations. When I was building the dresser it became a more apparent issue as the dresser took up a lot of real estate causing me to move things too frequently when needing to use the TS. I only write this to help some others who might be laying out their setup to prevent similar issues.

From an old table I had received from a local friend/cabinet maker, there was a Kreg Clamp Trak set up in it that i never built into my current assembly table and had wished that I did. I took the opportunity to integrate it into this table. Thought being when assembling pocket screw frames etc. I don’t really need much use of the saw so it shouldn’t cause any issues.

Design is very basic, but so far it works and functions as needed. Very affordable to build; handful of 2X4’s and one sheet of melamine. Hardware is definitely the cost driver on this one, but could be eliminated easily.

Thanks for looking!

Great job. I too agree with a dedicated assembly table. I am constantly having to move in progress assemblies around to work. What a pain.

Do you plan to add dados to the outfeed table to allow for the miter bars to extend out the back of the table saw?

Thanks for sharing. I know you will enjoy this new beauty.

No routed slots for the miter gauge bars?

Miter slots have been cut – pictures were of when I just wrapped up and weren’t yet cut.
