This is my tablesaw setup I did about 4 years ago for my shop. It consists of two cabinets one on each side of the saw. I have a Delta cabinet saw with a 50” Beizmeir (sp?) aftermarket fence that only has a front rail assembly. This was screwed to the face of the cabinets and the tablesaw. The cabinets are made from off-the-shelf borg store 3/4” fir A/C plywood. All construction is dado joints. The drawers run on Accuride full-extension slides. The drawer pulls are the kind that are mounted into the drawer face as opposed to sticking out from the drawer face. The keeps the pulls from getting broken when they are hit with a sheet of plywood or a large heavy board. All the drawers can be configured anyway you can imaging for storing things. The large drawer on the right side has a simple blade holder that stores the vertically in a divider system. Again simple construction using glue and the nail gun. I applied about 3 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal and it has held up well for many years. The surface is melamine.
I use it for much more the cutting stuff. It makes a great, LARGE, assembly table, workbench, finishing platform (when covered with painters paper) plus other things you can dream of. There is an over the blade guard and dust collector that keeps dust from blowing into my face from the saw blade.
I’ve made a Sketchup model of this and I’m trying to figure out how to make it available for download free. I’ll keep you posted on what I come up with.
Thanks for looking.
