I finally got around to building a table saw cabinet for my Ridgid table saw. What I did not like about the original saw stand is all the wasted space under the saw. I was also inspired by a youtube video of another similar saw cabinet. I am glad I used used six locking castors to support the saw’s weight and when they are all locked the saw does not move and is very stable. I did the test where you stand a nickel on edge on the saw table and it did not fall over when I turned on and off saw several times. It turned out to be 3/4” higher than the original stand because I had decided to use 3/4 plywood blocks to attach the castors to the base for added stability and was able to use longer lag bolts. I hardly notice the saw being slightly higher. I am once again pleased that I did this and can’t wait to use it for my next project to put it through the test.
