Decided it was time to get rid of the crappy flimsy steel stand and build a rolling cabinet. I started to create a cabinet that would fit my needs, but stumbled across this blog by a fellow LJ’er and decided not to re-invent the wheel and go with his design. He had everything laid out already and allowed me to hit the ground running on construction.

Construction was relatively straightforward with no real issues. My saw cabinet ended up being slightly shorter than the original plans called for, so I just built a small platform for the saw to sit on to bring it up flush with the tops of the side cabinets. I don’t have a real dust collector yet, so I can’t comment on how well the dust collection will be, but I’m sure it’ll be better than before. I just used a 8”x8” plate with a 4” port underneath the saw, which is connected to an elbow and then run out the back.

To keep the costs down, I went with sande ply and kitchen drawer slides. The drawer pulls are just 1” slices of a wooden dowel I had sitting around.

I still need to mount the safety switch and put down a couple coats on poly on the wings, but it’s functional right now and offers me plenty of storage that would have otherwise been wasted space.

Thanks for looking.

Stellar job on the build of the saw cabinet…..It turned out nice….I’m glad I was able to help a little on the build…You’ll get years of good use out of it…I think that a saw cabinet is one of the best innovations for these old work horses, and brings them back to life…..Continue the good work….!!!

Thanks again Rick. I’m really just happy that I can easily roll the saw around now instead of fighting the original stand and crappy wheels.

Have your say...
