For my first several projects, I didn’t have a table saw and had to make all my rip cuts at my father-in-law’s with his old Bosch. That got to be old fast. The wife surprised me with a Dewalt DW745 for Christmas! It was a gift worthy of a good stand.
This stand puts the saw at the exact height of my workbench, which can now double as an outfeed table. I glued maple runners to the bottom of the drawers so they both have hardwood sliding on hardwood, which makes for very smooth operation. The top drawer’s removable tray was an afterthought that occurred to me after watching some videos on making jewelry boxes. The last picture is of the much needed zero-clearance insert I made along the way.
This is the first time I have built a piece of furniture, shop or otherwise. Also the first time I’ve constructed drawers. All in all, I’m pretty pleased with the results, though there is plenty of room to improve.
