Saw Table

I built this saw table cabinet in March of 2009 to support my early 80’s era Craftsman table saw. I had the plans for this cabinet since they came out in Woodsmith magazine in October of 1986. As you can see, its got lots of handy storage and the peg board in front is a door behind which is a slide-out bag that catches sawdust. Its made out of one sheet of 3/4 birch plywood. The drawer fronts are solid birch or maple (can’t remember). I really wanted to show off the crank handles which is the first upgrade I just made yesterday based on a review on LJ. I’m planning on adding a Vega PRO 50 table saw fence next.

I built that same cabinet when the magazine first came out and I am still using it. It is one of the most useful things I ever built.

That’s a nice setup. A pretty stout looking craftsman as well.

Great looking saw cabinet. Functional and nicely made. I need to make something like that for my 1989 Craftsman 113.

sgmdwk, thanks; the plans were from Woodsmith, October 1986, which is probably out of print but you might be able to find it on Ebay or a similar plan somewhere else.

I’ve added the Vega 40” to my 113 saw. It was the best thing I could have done to improve the saw. What a difference. Also if you haven’t already may I suggest adding a link belt. It to makes a huge difference.

Thank Jim; yes, Craig, the Vega fence is my next upgrade and I’ve read about the belt too which I’ll add also. Thanks for the tip; BTW, I’m a driver also – Con-Way Freight.
