So its not made of wood. But its my most recent finished project that is related. I designed and built it to hold my new Grizzly table saw which you can see in the background. My dad came over and welded it up for me this past weekend. Took us all day to make it.
Its got a pivoting end to solve any issues of flexing and knocking the incra fence out of alignment. I am VERY please at how it turned out…this is really my first project i have done in steel. Its very heavy, close to 150lbs. A bit overkill but i the dimensions worked out better to use 2×4 steel. So it really didnt cost me much more and its super heavy duty.
I am going to put some 3/4 plywood in the bottom and after i get the saw in there, maybe put some bolts that i can screw down to the ground to make it rock solid once in position. I figured i would try it first and see if its actually needed.
