I finally signed up to this website after lurking around for quite awhile and thought I’d throw up at least one project. This is a tablesaw cabinet that I made before a remodel of the garage into a woodshop. It’s a joy to move around now with the wheels. Garage is still a project in work.

We have the same saw. Nice work on the movable table!!! I’m still using the leg set that came with my saw, I need to upgrade, thanks for the idea ;-)

A whole lot better than a set of metal legs!

Good job hiding the legs (they are still there, you just hid them). Seriously great job. I bet it helps with the dust collection, plus you have lots of extra storage.

All, Thanks for your kind comments.
Pat, I used the Woodsmith Magazine plan from Plans Now. But I didn’t put in the dust collector as shown in the plan. I put in a shelf and stuck a box there to catch the dust that falls through. Also I added the 3/4” wood on the table top beneath the saw to keep from cracking my knuckles. Wish I could take credit for that but I saw it on the web somewhere, might have been here on Lumberjocks.
Here’s a pic of the dust catcher.
I still need to finish the outfeed table for it!

Same saw, same base. I built my base about 20 years ago and it has served me well. Good design and it will last you a long time. I have since added dust collection by adding a port on the bottom from Woodcraft and ducting the 4 inch out the back. Works great and the ability to move the base and storage are great. I did pegboard on the center door for hanging accessories.

Nice job on this cart. 3 HP is nice to have in a saw. Your dust collection idea is very functional. Well done.

For those that are looking for the plans, they’re in Woodsmith #47. I do have that issue electronically.
