This is my new tablesaw built from 5/8” MDF in a Torsion Box design. It is 72” x 72” x 4”and has built in cabinets for my DeWalt Planer and Delta Joiner for easy access. The table is covered in Formica for a nice smooth surface. The saw sits on a 3/4” plywood platform that has 4x jacking bolts (one in each corner) for leveling and locking in place. It is insulated so that all airflow comes through the plate or front of the saw cabinet to sweep dust to the DC port. The ShopFox aftermarket fence is bolted to the table and has through-bolts for the Cast Iron saw surface to lock it in place once the saw is leveled. There is a dust collection port that has a variable damper (use the white hanger to open/shut) to allow the saw dust collection to be turned off during router table use. The router table uses a Rockler router lift kit and the backside of the tablesaw fence. Another plus – it houses a refrigerator (to the right of the plug) for emergency beer reserves.
The only down-side? It weights about 500 lbs and the top is too big to get up the stairs if I ever needed to. Feedback and suggestions for further improvements are appreciated.
