So I finally decided to try and build a mobile base for my saw after seeing all the awesome table saw stations on here. I built the cabinet out of all 3/4 “blonde” ply from lowes and 4 inch casters. Used dados , glue and pocket screws for the construction. I’m pleased so far seems to be rock solid compared to the old mobile base and a lot easier to roll and access the dc hoses (which is not pictured). The fence is a shop fox classic. I’m thinking about building a “flip up” out feed table or wood mags out feed table/work bench that lefts up and you roll the saw under. If anyone has got any tips or opinions on out feed tables please share, looking for ideas. Thanks.
Jon

using the matching paint color made me think it was some ridgid cabinet I hadn’t seen before. did you have them custom match the paint color to the saw or did you just pick something close?

Jon, looks great! What size are the shop fox classic fence rails? And what are the overall dimension of the whole setup? Thanks brad

Hey bentheviking I got lucky on the colors, krylon had the perfect orange spray paint and then the grey was a quart of pre mixed rustoleum enamel. I’m curious to see how durable the oil based paints ends up being. An it was actually cheaper then latex.

Brad2064 Thanks! The one I have measure at 74 inches. It was given to me and came off a grizzly saw. It works great for me. The base is 60×22 the top is 74×27.

Nicely done. I also like the non-boring colors.

Thanks guys! I do want to say that if I were to do it over I would make the base deeper so that the draw fronts would be closer to the front edge of the fence rails. Its a few inches back as of right now, which makes accessing the top draw weird.

I like it. I would like to improve my set-up, but probably not for a few years still.
